Abstract

[With the ongoing socioeconomic development, migrant workers have become an indispensable labor force during China’s urbanization process. By the end of 2012, there were 262.61 million migrant workers across China, an increase of 3.9 % from the previous year, according to the Statistical Bulletin of the People's Republic of China on the 2012 National Economic and Social Development published by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS). Specifically, there were 163.36 or 99.25 million migrant or local farmer workers, which represented 62.2 % or 37.8 % of all migrant workers across China. Most of them have been viewed as registered city residents from the perspective of traditional statistical methods regarding the Urbanization rate, but they have not become real registered city residents; they have made a great contribution to urban development, but have no access to benefits that should be available to registered city residents. Today in China, a great deal of non-local migrant workers are in developed large cities, especially megacities. It is therefore significant to estimate the number of migrant workers and their citizenization costs in megacities and to let migrant workers become registered city residents on a voluntary basis and receive benefits equivalent to the ones available to native registered city residents.]
