National macro-adjust economic policies and regional development strategies have made great affects on urbanization process both in spatial and temporal aspects.Owing to the affects,regional spatial distribution of urbanization in China has transformed from North-South differentiated to East-Mid-West differentiated.Meanwhile,province ranking urbanization is gradually decreasing the gap each other.As far as factors which affect urbanization differentiation in different provinces are concerned,traditional agricultural development is gradually diminishing its influence over urbanization.However,township and village enterprise and foreign direct investment turn significant indicators regarding urbanization development in the late 1990s in China.
