This paper empirically studies the relation between the domestic saving and the domestic investment with respect to the GDP national income for China during the 60-year period, 1952--2011. We adapt the method in Feldstein and Horioka (1980) for developed OECD countries to the developing country China, and analyze the change on the relation of national investment proportion and national saving proportion from three different sub-periods according to the national policy changes. We show that the saving proportion series and the investment proportion series in China during 1952--2011 under the first order difference are steady and co-integrated of order one. Due to economic reform in China since 1978, the nonlinear (square-root) cross-section regression is presented from empirical analysis. Furthermore, we specify the openness of the economy, the household saving, corporate and government saving to see the relation change.
