Abstract
This thesis studies the relationship between urbanization and income
inequality in China in the period 2001 to 2012. To analyze this question, firstly, it
studies the urbanization development by looking of the urbanization ratio, growth rate
of urban population and the share of agriculture in GDP. Secondly, it conducts the Gini
coefficient of urban and rural sector respectively based on the data published by the
National Bureau Statistics of China. Our results find that the income inequality in
urban sector follows the Kuznets inverted U curve and the eastern coastal region has a
higher income inequality.
