The impact of labor mobility on industrial upgrading in China
School of Economics and Management, Beijing Jiaotong University, Beijing 100044, China
Using the data of 2010 population census and 2015 1% population sample survey in China and the data published by the National Bureau of Statistics, the index of industrial structure transformation was adopted to measure the explained variable of industrial upgrading, and the least squares model was constructed to investigate the impact of migrant labor force on industrial upgrading and its influencing mechanism. Research shows that the migrant labor force has a positive impact on the transformation of industrial structure, and increasing the proportion of urban migrant labor force is conducive to promoting the transformation of agricultural economic structure into non-agricultural industries. Furthermore, the paper discusses the mechanism through which labor flow affects industrial upgrading, and the test results show that labor flow promotes urban industrial upgrading through local market effect and human capital accumulation mechanism. Labor flow is a process of improving the efficiency of resource allocation. Cities attract a large number of foreign labor, which is of great significance to the transformation and upgrading of urban industrial structure.
