AbstractThis paper reveals the mechanism of population migration along the coastal urban regions in China. This is the first large-scale survey on floating population ever conducted in large and medium cities including Beijing, Tianjin, Tangshan, Langfang, Nanjing and Kunshan. The paper first reviews the intellectual foundation of demographic studies on migration. With the survey data and further analysis, it examines the characteristics of population migration in Chinese cities. China is now undergoing a large scale of rural migration into the urban domain with mechanistic increases in the number of floating population. The motive for migration is predominately economic. Family-type migration is getting more popular than individual migration. From an economic perspective, low value added, semi-skilled jobs are taken up by the first-time migrants, and there is also the corresponding shift to service and managerial type of work for the local residents. Chain-type migration with upward movement on the job ladder is observed for the second-time migrants. From a social viewpoint, jobs for migrants are mostly untenured and without welfare provision as compared with those available for the urban dwellers. Migrations in cities coalesced together to form cliques and syndicates. This has resulted in a more segregated urban morphology.
本文在對西方國家人口流動研究進行綜述的基礎上,通過北京、天津、南京、廊坊、唐山和昆山等大中城市流動人口問卷調查,首次對大中城市流動人口遷移和流動特征、從業結構、遷移原因與途徑進行了系統的研究。中國現在正在經歷大規模的農村流動人口向城市遷移的過程。這種遷移的動力主要是經濟因素。家庭遷移現已較單身遷移更為普遍。從經濟學的角度看,低附加值、非熟練工作崗位是流動人口第一次就業的主要職業,然后向服務業和手工制造業工作崗位轉移;鏈式遷移是流動人口遷移的主要形式。從社會學角度看,流動人口大多數都從事臨時的、低工資的工作,具有明顯的移民集團和自然區間的社會勞動分工特色
