Supplementary notes

The data have been collected through a survey which covered around 226,000 rural workers from 31 provinces, 1,587 districts and 8,490 villages. Migrant laborers are defined as workers that are still registered as rural permanent residents, but have left their place of origin for more than six months in order to find work in another place. They either stay in the same province or move to another province in search of work.

Figures for earlier years have been taken from previous publications.
