Abstract

To date, it has not been possible to address questions of income distribution in China systematically because of inadequate statistical data. There were few estimates of the distribution of income in China and the available estimates were fragmentary and unreliable. Our study begins to fill this void, providing relatively reliable and conceptually sound estimates of household income in both rural and urban areas.
