During Yang Zhou's visit, Professor Xie will involve her in a research project, “Market Transition and Job Mobility Trends in China,” which will be based on statistical analyses of job history data from the China Family Panels Study (CFPS). It will be an important study, because very little is currently known about job mobility in contemporary China, as truly longitudinal data needed for this kind of study were made possible only recently by the 2014 wave of CFPS.
