The results of multiple linear regression analysis and binary logistic regression analysis show that, though demographic and social factors have some significant impact on the new generation migrant workers’ self-identification, the access and use of ICTs are playing an active role in the new generation migrant workers’ self-recognition of identification and their willingness and situation of city integration.
