What is it about?
This paper explores the causal relation between intermarriage and cultural integration of non-Han migrants in urban China. We have shown that intermarriage promotes the cultural integration of non-Han migrants. This is because intermarriage has a positive impact on social interaction of non-Han migrants, thus enhancing their cultural integration.

Why is it important?
In 2020, China's floating population is 376 million, among which, non-Han migrants accounting for about 9%. Motivated by this context, we constructed a novel instrumental variable - historical intermarriage ratio to identify the causal relation between intermarriage and cultural integration of non-Han migrants. We also come up with a new mechanism, i.e., social interaction to interpret the benchmark conclusion that intermarriage improves cultural integration of non-Han migrants.
