Abstract

We investigate the effects of ethnic diversity on economic growth in the People's Republic of China. Based on provincial data from 1982 to 2007, we find a negative relationship between ethnic diversity and economic growth across Chinese provinces supporting existing cross-country studies such as Alesina et al. (2003). According to our estimations, going from complete ethnic homogeneity to complete ethnic heterogeneity reduces the growth rate between 2 percentage points and 2.5 percentage points in China, depending on the ethnic diversity index used.
