The classification of family livelihood transition stages of migrant workers in the process of new-type urbanization and its application
China Rural Survey,2019,No. 05
This article aims to divide the transition process of livelihood of migrant workers’ families and analyze the behavioral logic and resource allocation characteristics of migrant workers’ families in the process of new-type urbanization in China from the perspective of family livelihood transition. The study examines the economic correlation between migrant workers’ families and rural areas from two dimensions of employment and residence. Based on the degree of correlation, the transition process of livelihood of migrant workers can be divided into an initial stage, an intermediate stage and a later stage. Afterwards, this method of stage division is used to identify the livelihood transition of 717 migrant workers’ family samples in Hubei and Guangdong. It finds that, in different stages of livelihood transition, obvious differences exist in the logic of family economic behavior, the allocation of family members in urban and rural areas, the utilization mode of housing and land, and the spatial flow of household income.
Pre-certification or post-traceability: a study on consumer preference for food safety information label and their interactive relationship
China Rural Survey,2019,No. 05
This paper combines the advantages of the random nth-price auction experiment and the menu selection experiment. It takes tomatoes as an example and analyzes consumers’ willingness to pay (WTP) for food safety certification labels (organic labels, green labels and pollution-free labels) and food traceability information labels (planting traceability information labels and marketing traceability information labels), as well as the interactive relationships among the two groups of labels. It finds that consumers are generally willing to pay a price premium for these two types of labels. The provision of food safety certification and traceability system can significantly increase consumers’ WTP for organic and traceability labels, but that seems to have little impact on WTP for green and pollution-free labels. Different degrees of substitution exist among organic labels, green labels and pollution-free labels. A two-way complementary relationship can be found between planting traceability information labels and marketing traceability information labels. Finally, the study finds a bidirectional substitution relationship between traceability information labels and organic labels, and a unidirectional substitution relationship between traceability information labels and green labels.
