Abstract

This paper discusses to what extent the economic growth in China in the 1980's has improved the economic well‐being in urban regions of the provinces Sichuan and Liaoning and whether or not the economic growth has been attained at the cost of increased inequality. The study is based on individual household data from the State Statistical Bureau's Urban Household Survey during the 1986–90 period.
