In the urban-rural dual structure, there is an obvious difference in terms of job between Chinese urban residents and mobile residents, thus causing well-being difference between the two. This paper makes a decomposition of well-being difference through using Appleton decomposition method. The result shows that the well-being difference between Chinese urban residents and mobile residents is mainly caused by well-being difference in the same job type, while the well-being difference brought by different job types is not large; job entry restriction and discrimination is the main reason for causing the well-being difference between Chinese urban residents and mobile residents, while personal characteristics and human capital elements play a limited role. On this basis, this paper puts forward the relevant policy recommendations.
