  • Wenrong Qian et al.Email author


This chapter uses the samples of “rural families living in rural areas” and “rural families living in urban areas (migrant workers’ families)” to analyze the migration of rural families and citizenization of migrant workers. This study found that the average age of migrant workers is 37.7 years, and the average schooling year is 9.4 years. On average, the working time of migrant workers is 9.1 hours per day and 25 days per month, which is generally higher than the regulations set by the labor law. The overall education level of migrant workers is not high, but we can see an obvious improvement in the level among the new generation of migrant workers.
