AbstractThis paper uses survey data from Chinese Household Income Project (CHIP) to document wages and returns to education for a large number of cities during China's economic transition. Between 1988 and 1995, average real wages and returns to education increased, yet their spatial dispersions across cities widened dramatically. While market-oriented reforms should help equalize returns to human capital across regions, there was no sign of significant wage convergence in Chinese cities during this period. I argue that coordinated reforms in pension systems, housing markets, hukou registration, and local government behavior are imperative for improving the integration of local labor markets in China.
