Growth Patterns of the Eight Regions in the People's Republic of China (1980-1985)


  • Dendrinos, Dimitrios S


The objective of this brief paper is very specific: to test with data from the People's Republic of China (PRC) an earlier model by the author on regional relative dynamics. Originally, that model was used to replicate the regional relative population and income growth of Nine Divisions in the United States for the period 1929-79. Only one component of the original model is replicated in the case of the PRC, due to data limitations. Although the full regional dynamics model contains a system of two simultaneous differential equations, with a linear and a non-linear isocline respectively, here only the equation with the linear isocline is confirmed. This particular component of the model has also been independently verified for the case of Japan's regional growth.
