Abstract

Income is one measure of material well-being. But do the people with the lowest income also work the longest hours? Are they also malnuourished and unable to read? Do social isolation and ill-health compound the hardships of low income? On the evidence presented in this paper the answer for poor rural Chinese households generally is "no".
