All domestic and foreign literatures on obstacle factors of urbanization process are statistically analyzed by using Meta-analysis method, and 14 main obstacle factors are identified and extracted from previous research results. After that, the paper analyzes the relative structure among the 14 factors by using interpretive structural model. The results show that urban-rural IT industry gap, IT-using gap, employment opportunity gap, informatinization policies difference, consumption difference, social culture difference, information resource gap, information consciousness difference and thinking manner difference are superficial and direct obstacle factors; IT-owning gap, educational development gap and life level difference are intermediate and indirect obstacle factors; information infrastructure difference and income gap are essential and basic obstacle factors. This analysis is helpful to open out drag system of urbanization process under the condition of urban-rural “digital divide”.
