Inequalities in China


China inequalities hugely evident in the westernised and progressive coastal regions versus the backwards interior


Low population growth in urban areas, therefore, large families in urban regions


  • Deserts & arid on interior
  • Resource predominantly found in East
  • Coastline & rivers generally favoured


  • Wealthy males v poor females
  • 91% are ethnic Han but there are 55 non-Han groups which make up 100 million people
  • Rich v Poor - 204 million people live on less than $1.25 a day
