    Rural To Urban Migration in China by Li, Jiameng

    During the past forty years, China has experienced possibly the largest amount of internal population migration in history where one-quarter of the population migrated from either village to cities or small cities to big cities. While most of the people chose to retain their double-residential status both in the rural and urban areas, there is still a large number of people hoping that they could settle in the cities and be incorporated as part of China’s urbanization process, but the Chinese Hukou system(Household registration) hinders a lot of the migrants from doing so. There have been constant reforms carried out with respect to the Hukou system and the focus of this paper draws on the policy implications from the Hukou reform and whether the migration pattern has changed following the Hukou reform.
