Abstract

This paper provides a detailed account of a unique longitudinal dataset on Chinese university students - the Migration and Reshaping of Consumption Patterns (MARCO_P) survey. This study is a collaboration project across six institutions in the UK (University of Southampton and University of Nottingham), France (Groupe d'Analyse et de Theorie Economique Lyon-Saint-Etienne), Germany (Institute for Labor Economics) and China (Bejing Normal University and Chinese Academy of Social Sciences). The paper describes the background, sampling frame and structure of the survey, and provides an overview of the topics covered, summary statistics for selected variables, and avenues for future research based on this dataset.
