Regression Analysis Research on the Impact of Urbanization on Farmers’ Consumption Structure

Dexun WU, Xuemei ZHANG


The status of research on the impact of urbanization on farmers’ consumption structure conducted by the domestic and international scholars is described in the paper; and the argument is supported by exploration and analysis that the urbanization has exerted an influence on farmers’ consumption structure. Furthermore, by concretely exploring the related data model constructed in the research, the following achievements are made: along with the advancement of urbanization, the proportion of three categories including food and clothing in farmers’ consumption structure turns on a downward trend, while the proportion of housing, transportation, and other five categories are in an upward trend; in the farmers’ consumption expenditure, the medical and health expenditure is significantly affected by urbanization, while urbanization only has a little influence on food expenditure. On the basis of the conclusion in this paper, suggestions are put forward which include promoting the urbanization rate, creating a better condition for the development of the rural residents, improving the basic social security system and perfecting a series of policies that stimulate rural consumption including the “home appliances going to the countryside”, “mobile phones going to the countryside”, and “cars going to the countryside” etc..
