Abstract

In this work, Henan is taken as a typical study area to assess the level of gender differences of urbanization willingness in China; Henan population structure is a small representation of the whole country. Using data of Henan migrant workers' citizenization research in 2017, the evaluation index system of Henan migrant workers' urban integration degree was established based on the Maslow's demand theory. The weight was computed by combining the weight from the analytic hierarchy process and factor analysis, respectively. The urbanization willingness of different genders was calculated by using the evaluation index system. The result shows that there is no difference between the two groups.
