Abstract

China’s regional income gap has given rise to different socio-economic characteristics of its core and periphery, leading to different expressions in demographic transition. This paper explores the spatial pattern of China’s fertility, age, migration, and household transition and finds that the regional pattern of demographic transition roughly follows a gradient of provinces’ economic status. Further analysis indicates that this pattern is more sensitive to economic conditions in rural areas than in urban equivalents.
