Summary 文章先從流動人口的流動方式、流動時間和流動空間3個維度來構建流動人口婚姻穩定性的分析框架,再基于全國106個城市157535個流動人口家庭調查數據來檢視流動人口離婚風險的影響機理。研究發現:城鎮戶籍流動人口離婚率高于農村戶籍,并隨年齡增加和教育程度的提高而升高。此外,同省流入和流出人口在離婚率上非常近似,反映了區域性婚姻文化效應。流動過程中婚姻質量的降低,替代資源可接觸性的增多,再婚搜尋成本的降低,都增加了流動人口的離婚風險。回歸結果顯示:丈夫獨自外出務工,流動時間長、距離短,與當地文化差異少,離婚風險高。 In this study,we construct a multidimensional framework for analyzing marital stability among floating population,generate hypotheses,and test them based on a large sample survey of 157535 migrants’ households in 106 cities in China.The prevalent divorce rates among floating population are of clear patterns by age,education and urban /rural type,with higher rates for older,more educated and urban-registered residents.By province,the divorce rate of flow-in migrants is similar to that of flow-out migrants,reflecting regionalized cultural effects on marriage.The risk of divorce is enhanced in the migration process during which the quality of marriage declines,contacts for the substitution increase,and search costs for marriage reduce.Regression results show that the odds of being divorced are greater for solely moved husbands( than wives) and those who migrated for a longer period and over a shorter distance.
