Research Group of Development Research Centre of the State Council
The conversion of the migrant workers to the citizen is a significant change which conforms to the wishes of the majority of the migrant workers and the requirements of the modernization construction of China. There is some basis in reality for the citizenization of the migrant workers. Based on the field investigation of 6 cities across the country and the questionnaire survey on 6232 migrant workers from more than 20 towns, we found that the wishesof the migrant workers to become citizens are strong, but do not want to change the way for urban registration. In terms of the public costs of the citizenization, according to constant prices of 2010, the public cost of each migrant worker is about 8 million. In order to steady promote the citizenization of the migrant workers, we should focus on expanding the mployment, protecting the legitimate rights and interests, improving the public services and arrangingthe settlement of the migrant workers, deepen the reform of the household registration system, improve the urbanization level of population, and promote the migrant workers to share our reform and development result.
