Spatial Dependence and Divergence across Chinese Cities

Review of Development Economics, 2010, vol. 14, issue 2, 386-403

Abstract: This paper analyzes the evolution of urban output per capita across Chinese cities in post‐reform era. Our results suggest no evidence of output convergence across cities from 1984 to 2003. We find that cities with comparable output per capita are likely to be located in the same region; furthermore, cities tend to mirror the mobility of their counterparts located in the same province, but not the same region. The divergence in urban output per capita across the nation will continue if the current economic growth pattern persists in the future.
