Cai and Du (Institute of Population and Labor Economics, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences) offer 14 articles that examine recent developments in Chinese demographics and its implications for the labor market, especially the role of internal migrant labor. Demographers and economists from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and other Chinese universities and government organizations discuss recent trends in migration and migrant labor statistics; the rapid growth of demographic and economic changes over the last 30 to 40 years and effects on reducing the supply of labor and increasing the elderly population; and the relationships between demographic change, industrialization, migrant labor, and economic growth. They also address whether China has reached the "Lewis turning point," wage arrears and discrimination, and labor shortages. This is the first of the yearbook series to be published in English. Articles were drawn from the Chinese annual "Green Book" of population and labor of the last two years, prepared by the Institute of Population and Labor Economics of CASS.
