- Based on the contribution of Amartya Sen on forming mechanism of poverty, the analysis framework of global poverty and its reduction issues has been transforming from "single-dimension" poverty research, taking wage income as core, into multidimensional ones. Regarding to the multidimensional poverty problem of urban migrant worker in China, the paper attempts to account the poverty incidence and relevant influential factors of Chinese urban migrant worker from five dimensions including education, health, assets, life quality, and social participation for empirical research. The results show that, in addition to wage income, the "multidimensional" poverty problem that urban migrant worker in our country are facing is quite prominent while it has been too long neglected. Therefore, it is in need of structural reform in order to eliminate urban-rural dual structure.
