Research Critique

The main aim of this study was to explore on the economic growth as well as the urbanization that china has experienced. In addition, the study examines largely the reasons behind the existence of the de facto migration from the rural areas to the urbanized areas. It further looks its slower growth rate. The researcher has therefore based its study within the percentage growth in china by examining the Chinese GDP, the number of people in china who live in the urban areas based on annual percentage along with an analysis of reports by the ministry of public security in china.

The researcher bases their study on the hypothesis that despite there being an increase in the de facto urban population, due to economic growth in china, a slower de facto urban population will be witnessed due to hukou enforcement.

The sampling was nonrandom, including the human population of china between 1980 up to 2012. The researcher’s choice of such a sampling frame is suitable. This is the case since the sample acts as a representative of the whole population in china. However, one may argue on the contrary on basis that the hokou system was started back in 1958. True, but changes to the nongzhuanfei requirements took effect starting mid-1980s. As such, the findings will be reliable since the variety in the sample varies consistently within the sampling frame outlined. Therefore, the researcher had an appropriate choice of sampling method as well as having the interest of the public at hand.

The dependent variable is the annual de facto urban China’s population. The researcher’s use of this as the dependent variable is appropriate since it can be measured as a percentage of the total population of China, which lives in the urban areas thereby giving accurate data samples. Further, the writer supports the reliability of the chosen variable since the data source used for the study is the World Bank, which is far much reliable.

The independent variable, economic growth, that is realized through the GDP annual percentage growth, is suitable since it analysis the total growth in all the domestic resources within China on yearly basis. However, it should be noted that the de facto population and the GDP growth varies with years and depending on various factors. It is therefore advisable that a large data set is used to compare on the changes. The researcher addresses this well by working out the average GDP and the yearly percentage change. Consequently, such data can suitable show the accurate economic production, size as well as the general growth in all the county’s sectors. The researcher clearly, presents this.

The researcher uses a longitudinal design as a measure of all the changes that the population witnesses. This is a suitable choice as the study consists of a large number of cases. It is very valid since it brings past data and compares it with present situation. Besides, the statistics highlighted will adequately help in deeply examining the data. However on the other hand, longitudinal design takes quite some time for the researcher to gather results.

The researcher clearly outlines the expected results based on the study carried, the statistics given as well as data from the World Bank. This comes in line with the sources aforementioned which make it simple for anybody to understand.

On the writing style, the writer reference styles are okay, though a few grammatical mistakes and repetition were found, for instance, ‘The documents will either have to either be…,

From the foregoing, the results and data analysis provided by the researcher can be relied on if the mentioned cases are addressed.
