An Empirical Study on Spatial Disparity of Regional Economy since Reform and Opening In China: Counting for Grouping Income in Provinces

Rongxue Jin


This paper takes the way that divides all thirty one provinces into five groups under the standard of accounting for twenty percentages of all regions during 1978-2004. Then it examines the share of every provincial gross domestic product per capita versus the sum of all provinces and ranks the order. And last the Lorenz Curves are drawn at the interval of two years. All computed outcomes are shown in graphs and tables, explicitly exploring the change of disparity of all China’s provincial region, what serves as scientific and objective bases for analyzing the reasons of regional economy’s disparity changes, evaluating its influences, and predicting the future development trend.
