Labor Migration and Income Distribution in Rural China
Pages 26

The two issues are mutually interactive and determi­ native, each playing reciprocally the roles of cause and effect. This chapter at­ tempts an empirical analysis of the interactive relations between the two, with the emphasis on the effects of rural-urban labor migration on income distribution in rural China.
