Abstract

[The population of migrant workers in China has been escalating rapidly in recent years. By the end of 2012, the total number of Chinese migrant workers had reached 262.61 million, up 3.9 % from 2011. Specifically, there were 163.36 million non-local migrant workers, up 3.0 % year on year, and 99.25 million local ones, up 5.4 % year on year. In the period between 2009 and 2012, the total number of Chinese migrant workers increased on an annual average by 10.94 million, including 6.01 million non-local migrant workers and 4.93 million local ones. The problem of housing assistance has become a key issue for migrant workers, especially non-local ones. With a summary of the current urban housing assistance system and local housing policies for migrant workers in China, this paper will analyze the current status and problems of housing assistance for migrant workers, and subsequently provide policy recommendations about it.]
