Based on the review of current studies, the AA. first used the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) method to evaluate the urban-rural development and transformation level by population transformation index, land transformation index, industrial transformation index and social transformation index between 1996 and 2012 around the Bohai Rim Region (covering the entire areas of Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Liaoning and Shandong). Then, based on the results of each index, they used the exploratory spatial data analysis (ESDA) method to investigate the spatial autocorrelation of the change in the urban-rural development transformation index during the 16-year period using Global Moran's I index and Local Moran's I index. Finally, the AA. investigated the mechanism of change of the urban-rural development transformation index at county level, summarizing 5 main factors : 1) the radiation from the surrounding big cities, 2) the acceleration of the urbanization process, 3) the upgrading of the industrial structure, 4) the publishing and implementation of a macro development strategy and regional policy, and 5) natural factors such as topology
