No RP2006-133, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Food price increases and the introduction of radical social welfare and enterprise reforms during the 1990s generated significant changes in the lives of urban households in China. During this period urban poverty increased considerably. This paper uses household level data from 1986 to 2000 to examine what determines whether households fall below the poverty line over this period and investigates how the impact of these determinants have changed through time.
