With the convening of the 19th National People’s Congress of the Communist Party of China, building a modern economic system received extensive attention. However, urbanization is one of the indispensable key factors. So this paper will focus on the urbanization level of 31 provincial capital cities and 5 municipalities with independent planning status in China. First，12 indicators are selected as the basis for judging the urbanization. Then, the four factors are extracted based on factor analysis，which are science and technology culture, population, public life, industry, and environmental economy, and the index system is established. Next, the 36 cities are clustered to classify the level of urbanization in each region based on the cluster analysis. In the end, the 36 cities are clustered into 3 categories, the result and analysis are shown at the end of this paper.
