AbstractAccording to previous studies, the Chinese revised Hukou system has not been proven to be effective in the short-term movement of the rural labor force or in controlling urban populations. In this study, we address and analyze the self-selection problem from the perspective of inflows of short-term migration from the rural labor force and the endogeneity problem in the adoption of the revised <i>Hukou</i> system, based on the data from China Family Panel Studies (CFPS). The study shows that the revised <i>Hukou</i> system adopted by Chinese local governments was significantly efficient and harmed the short-term migration decisions of the rural labor force.
