IB Geography - Patterns and Change - China's Internal Migration

  1. 1. Internal Migration China
  2. 2. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008
  3. 3. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 In 2008 44% of China's population lives in cities.
  4. 4. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 In 2008 44% of China's population lives in cities. Projections say urbanites will be the majority by 2015 or earlier.
  5. 5. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 In 2008 44% of China's population lives in cities. Projections say urbanites will be the majority by 2015 or earlier. The urban population is swelling by roughly 15 million to 20 million each year, perhaps the largest peacetime migration in history.
  6. 6. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 In 2008 44% of China's population lives in cities. Projections say urbanites will be the majority by 2015 or earlier. The urban population is swelling by roughly 15 million to 20 million each year, perhaps the largest peacetime migration in history. Migrants move for a chance to exchange a life of subsistence agriculture for better-paid jobs in the cities, such as construction or factory work.
  7. 7. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008
  8. 8. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 For decades, China's government has restricted migration through the household-registration system, called hukou or huji.
  9. 9. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 For decades, China's government has restricted migration through the household-registration system, called hukou or huji. The system ties Chinese to their place of birth; residents can receive official education, health care and other services only where they are registered.
  10. 10. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 For decades, China's government has restricted migration through the household-registration system, called hukou or huji. The system ties Chinese to their place of birth; residents can receive official education, health care and other services only where they are registered. The system is one reason China has lagged behind many other developing countries in making the transition to an urban society. For instance, Latin America and South America were already majority urban by the mid-1960s.
  11. 11. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008
  12. 12. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 Many migrants remain trapped in a halfway existence, where it is administratively difficult for them to settle down in the city where they work but economically impossible to remain in their rural village.

Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 Many migrants remain trapped in a halfway existence, where it is administratively difficult for them to settle down in the city where they work but economically impossible to remain in their rural village. China's "floating population" - rural people working outside their home village - totaled 132 million in 2006, according to a survey by the country's National Bureau of Statistics.

Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 Many migrants remain trapped in a halfway existence, where it is administratively difficult for them to settle down in the city where they work but economically impossible to remain in their rural village. China's "floating population" - rural people working outside their home village - totaled 132 million in 2006, according to a survey by the country's National Bureau of Statistics. The government's judgment has been, in effect, that maintaining a huge temporary migrant population is better than overwhelming cities with a permanent influx of people.
  15. 15. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008
  16. 16. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 Small cities have relaxed their hukou rules, making it comparatively easy for newcomers to register and settle down.
  17. 17. Wall Street Journal: On the Move, April 12, 2008 Small cities have relaxed their hukou rules, making it comparatively easy for newcomers to register and settle down. Other local governments are experimenting with a hukou system that does away with the distinction between rural and urban residents of the same district - so farmers can easily and officially move to a city in their home district.

Other local governments are experimenting with a hukou system that does away with the distinction between rural and urban residents of the same district - so farmers can easily and officially move to a city in their home district. Changing the place of one's hukou has also become a somewhat easier and less exceptional procedure.
