Great Expectations? The Subjective Well-Being of Rural-Urban Migrants in China. Series: Discussion paper series

Abstract: This paper may be the first to link the literatures on migration and on subjectivewell-being in developing countries. It poses the question: why do rural-urban migranthouseholds settled in urban China have an average happiness score lower than that of ruralhouseholds? Three basic hypotheses are examined: migrants had false expectations abouttheir future urban conditions, or about their future urban aspirations, or about their futureselves. Estimated happiness functions and decomposition analyses, based on a 2002 nationalhousehold survey, indicate that certain features of migrant conditions make for unhappiness,and that their high aspirations in relation to achievement, influenced by reference groups, alsomake for unhappiness. It is difficult to form unbiased expectations about life in a new anddifferent world.
