Urbanization occurs either organically or planned as a result of individual, collective and state action. Living in a city can be culturally and economically beneficial since it can provide greater opportunities for access to the labor market, better education, housing, and safety conditions, and reduce the time and expense of commuting and transportation.

Most studies about migrant workers' housing in China focus on urban housing in migrants' adopted cities and issues such as what access migrants have to housing, what factors contribute to migrants.
