The survey is conducted in the middle of the 13th Five-Year Plan period, and the results will provide a scientific basis for the key indicators of the dynamic monitoring of migrant population health in China.

At the training class, the experts from CPDRC explained the key and difficult parts of the questionnaires, the functions of the survey system, compilation of the sampling roster at the third stage, requirements for the evaluation of survey quality and the matters worth attention during the survey process. Meanwhile, simulation demonstrations for typical cases were conducted.
