Urban-rural income disparity
|Issue Date:||Jul-2012||Citation:||Zhang, H.-W., Chen, W.-G., Zhang, J. (2012-07). Urban-rural income disparities and development in a panel data set of China for the period from 1978 to 2006. Applied Economics 44 (21) : 2717-2728. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1080/00036846.2011.566197||Abstract:||We examine the relationship between urban-rural income disparities and development in a panel data set of 30 provinces and regional subsets of China during the period of 1978 to 2006. There is an inverted-U relationship between the urban-rural income gap and per capita Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Financial development by scale widens the urban-rural income gap in all regional samples, while financial sector efficiency and rural bank loans may reduce it in some regions. Government spending raises the urban-rural income gap as well. We also examine the effects of urbanization, openness and education. © 2012 Taylor & Francis.||Source Title:||Applied Economics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/52113||ISSN:||00036846||DOI:||10.1080/00036846.2011.566197|
