Urbanisation in china
China’s population has been split with people living in the urban areas and rural areas. With the
continuous growth of urbanisation, many migrants, especially young people, move into the city to
find work, resulting in China going to have more people in the urban compared to rural. Statistics
illustrate that in 1978, 18% of China’s population lived in the city, in the mid-90s, 30% of people lived
in urban areas and that percentage soon rose to 40% in 2002. The migrants from the country
provided labour in the factory and also consume/ buy different products being sold in the market,
which is good for China’s economy. However, there are several times where people held back from
migrating, for reasons such as the household registration system, which is used to actively limit the
number of people living in the cities. When you live in rural areas you are given an area of land
where you can farm and grow food, but if you were to sell it you wouldn’t receive the money,
making people hesitant to leave. Additionally, many individuals have migrated to the city from the
country, work in a factory, then got fired as they’ve become too old and then moved back to the
country.
