Abstract

The A. argues that the migration and labor market processes in Chinese cities are deeply influenced by an institution-based opportunity structure. The experiences of temporary migrants seem to contrast with those of permanent state-sponsored migrants. Using accounts from a village-level survey and data from a survey in Guangzhou, the A. examines the most salient differences among the three subpopulations with different resident statuses : nonmigrant urban natives, permanent migrants and temporary migrants. Resident status is central to explaining migration processes and labor market segmentation in the Chinese city. Permanent migrants are the most privileged and successful elite
