CHINA'S INCOME DISTRIBUTION OVER TIME: REASONS FOR RISING INEQUALITY

We estimate China's rural, urban and overall income distributions using grouped data from 1985-2001. We show how the distributions evolve as well as examine trends in welfare indices. We find the growing rural-urban income gap and increases in inequality within either sector have been equally responsible for overall inequality growth.
