JIN Xiao-yi;DUAN Zhu-qing;School of Public Policy and Administration,Xi'an Jiaotong University;  
The inter-hukou marriage between a migrant worker,who holds a rural-hukou,and an urban-hukou holder is one of the specific processes of urbanization of family formations. This paper uses multi-source data to analyze inter-hukou marriages of rural migrant workers as an aspect of urbanization from a gender perspective. The ratio of inter-hukou marriages in China is about 13%,and marriages among people with similar hukou status are still most popular. The ratio of inter-hukou marriages is higher for females than for males,though men's rate of inter-hukou marriages is rising steadily. Compared with inter-hukou marriages in nearby cities and towns,cross region inter-hukou marriages in metropolitan areas have a higher rate as there are more opportunities in big cities which are seen to be more open and have greater room for social mobility. It has been found that human capital is important to hypergamy; that is,well-educated migrant workers with higher incomes are more likely to marry urban-hukou holders. Their parents' occupation and education are also important. This study helps to understand inter-hukou marriages in the context of urbanization in China.
