This chapter presents a spatial analysis of urban wages and incomes per capita using urban samples of the Institute of Economics, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences national household surveys of 1988 and 1995. Wage was the main reason for the general increase in earnings inequality. Basic wage made the biggest contribution to the convergence of earnings inequality across provinces, although other sources were more powerfully convergent.

Keywords:   China, income inequality, wages, urban inequality, households, convergence
