The number of migrant children and left-behind children increased significantly in 2010, compared to 2000 and 2005. While the number of migrant children increased more rapidly between 2005 and 2010, the number of left-behind children was more stable. This reflects the current shift in the tendency of migrants "moving with spouses" to the pattern of "moving with spouses and children". A continuation of this trend implies that the number of migrant children in China will continue to increase in the future.
