Influence of Urbanization on Growth of Rural Residents’ Consumption in Western Ethnic Minority Areas of China

To make clear the relation between urbanization and growth of rural resident consumption in western ethnic minority areas of China, this paper selected cross-sectional area of 12 provinces (cities) in western ethnic minority areas in 2005-2013 and made an empirical analysis through building panel data of influence of urbanization on rural resident consumption. Results indicate that there is positive correlation between urbanization and rural resident consumption growth in western ethnic minority areas. Urbanization increases income level of rural residents, strengthens demonstration effect of urban residents on rural resident consumption, and accordingly promotes rural resident consumption growth in western ethnic minority areas. Therefore, it is required to accelerate urbanization development, expand channels of increasing farmers’ income, improve resident consumption environment, and bring into play promotion function of counties, to drive rural resident consumption growth in western ethnic minority areas.
