In China, many cities are creating large labor demands, which however leaves many females staying at their home villages. This could be a serious bottleneck to the enhancement of overall economy and living quality in China. In this paper, a study to home staying women in a village of Chinese Jiangsu Province is conducted, while the living status and future trends of home staying women are surveyed and investigated. The fuzzy mathematics was employed to identify the key factors that keep the women home with different age groups. Further, a Grey Model with very small (<0.55%) modeling errors was calibrated to have predicted a decrease of home staying women in the future. Based on the identified key factors and also referred to the practices in other countries, pertinent policies and programs are recommended for the government to address the issues.
