Based on the panel data of China’s provinces from 2002 to 2009, the paper allocates new input resources among provinces reasonably using the DEA method and conducts an empirical analysis of innovation resources attraction. As indicated by the research, the innovation resource attraction in China shows the typical characteristic of zonal distribution, the east region is higher than the middle and west; the condition convergence of all provinces is identified, but the absolute convergence is not remarkable; the educational level and industry structure have positive influences, the openness and the level of government support have opposite impacts on different regions.
