Abstract: As the biggest developing and transitional country in the world, China has undergone large and lasting spatial agglomeration since market reform. This paper traces dynamic evolution of spatial agglomeration over the past three decades; the result shows regional disparity, caused by spatial agglomeration, worsened dramatically at the threshold of the new century. By using Theil decomposed technique, the index shows interregional inequality plays as the primary role. And then investigates driving forces for agglomeration based on broad theories, the estimates provide strong support for all three sources of Marshall’s theory.
