Income concentration in China: what role for education?

Abstract

This paper aims to analyse the relationship between income concentration and inequality in education in China for the period 1989 to 2006. We first estimate the association between individual attributes and income over time and, then, calculate the contribution of education and its distribution to income concentration. We find that education has become the bulk of income concentration and that the pace of equalising reforms should be accelerated, since the improvements in terms of educational equality are at risk to be counterbalanced by the fast growth of its importance in determining income distribution.
