In the past decade, the number of rural Chinese families with their own property has skyrocketed.
But as more families move into cities, rural residents are losing access to their ancestral homes and facing increasing housing costs, making it more difficult for them to buy property and buy goods.
In many parts of the country, urban areas are rapidly gentrifying.
In urban areas, the cost of renting a home has doubled over the past three years.
Many people live in cramped apartments, where they often cannot afford to buy food, clothing or other basic necessities.
In rural areas, however, it is not uncommon for many rural residents to live in overcrowded, overpriced homes.
The Chinese city that has become China’s capital is located on the outskirts of Beijing, where more than 2 million people live.
The area has a population of more than 4 million people.
Many of these residents are the descendants of immigrants from the southern regions of China, who moved here from Guangdongs coastal provinces in the 1950s.
Many of these rural Chinese migrants have lived in the countryside for generations.
According to the government, more than 90 percent of rural people in China are ethnic minorities.
Many are forced to live on small plots of land that lack proper infrastructure, and often they have no access to modern amenities such as electricity or clean water.
The number of people living in overcrowding housing has increased dramatically in recent years, according to the Chinese government.
According the government’s figures, there are about 4.2 million rural households with a housing problem, with an average size of 2,200 square feet.
In urban areas such as Fuzhi, it’s rare for the average person to have access to a modern, well-kept home.
The housing crisis in rural areas has been blamed on a range of factors, including the government building overspill drainage systems that create flooding, a lack of housing stock and inadequate government assistance programs, the Global Times reported in March.
The government has promised to solve the housing problem in rural communities, but the effort has been slow.
In recent years China has been building more housing and expanding government assistance to address the housing crisis.
