000020459 520__ $$aThis study examines the rural labor market in China based on the country's first national agricultural census.  The analysis highlights distinct differences of employment by age, gender, educational level, size of the household, and size of land holdings.  We use a generalized polytomous logits (GPL) framework to analyze the patterns of rural labor employment, capture the dynamic trends of the rural labor force, and gauge rural migration.   The estimation results, based on more than 4 million records of rural persons, indicate that the land size followed by the education level and age are the main factors affecting the chances of rural labor force by employment categories.
