Growth, inequality, and poverty in rural China : the role of public investments by Shenggen Fan( Book )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
In the past two decades, China has achieved world renown for reducing rural poverty. However, it is becoming harder to reduce poverty and inequality further in China, even though its economy continues to grow. This report compares the impact specific rural public investments can have on promoting growth and reducing poverty and inequality. Returns to these investments are calculated for the nation as a whole and for three economic zones in the west, central, and coastal regions of the country. Government expenditures that have the highest impact on poverty and growth include education, agricultural research and development, and rural infrastructure (roads, electricity, and telecommunications). Notably, spending on irrigation and anti-poverty loans had minimal impact. The report discusses the implications of these findings for setting future priorities for government investment. It also suggests avenues for future research and calls for a better understanding of how to improve the effectiveness of public resources. This report will be of interest to professionals involved in rural poverty reduction, rural development, agricultural growth, food security, and public investment policy
Essays on education and pension policies in rural China by Qiran Zhao( file )
2 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 19 libraries worldwide
In China führten Reformen seit 1978 zu gewaltigen wirtschaftlichen Umwälzungen, doch die zunehmende Urbanisierung stellt das Land vor große Herausforderungen. Zunächst fehlt für die Produktivitätssteigerung der Industrie ein adäquates ländliches Bildungssystem. Zweitens verbleiben durch den Rückgang ländlicher Beschäftigung und die Arbeitsmigration in Städte viele Senioren allein auf dem Land. Die nachfolgenden Essays behandeln diese Problemfelder, indem sie verschiedene Aspekte sozioökonomischer Bedingungen im ländlichen China diskutieren. Zwei der Studien zielen auf die Identifikation von Wegen zur Verbesserung des ländlichen Bildungssystems, die dritte Studie befasst sich mit dem ländlichen Rentensystem, welches kürzlich zur materiellen Absicherung der ländlichen Bevölkerung im Rentenalter eingeführt wurde. Die drei Essays finden Anhaltspunkte für negative Effekte von Arbeitsmigration der Eltern auf die Schulbildung von Kindern, die Verbesserung der Ernährung und Gesundheit von Kindern durch Ausgabe von Ernährungsinformationen an Eltern, sowie Wege zur Erhöhung der Teilnahme am Rentensystem, um Altersarmut vorzubeugen

Feminization of Agriculture in China Debunking the Myth and Measuring the Consequence of Women Participation in Agriculture by Linxiu Zhang( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This paper helps build a clear picture of the role of women in China's agriculture and, if agricultural feminization has been occurring, its impact on labor use, productivity, and welfare. Using two data sets that track changes in labor use over time, the authors examine the evolution of off farm and on farm employment trends and analyze the role of men and women in the emergence of China's labor markets. They explore who is working on China's farms, and the effects of these decisions on labor use, productivity and welfare. The analysis debunks the myth that China's agriculture is becoming feminized. Even if women were taking over the farm, the consequences in China would be mostly positive from a labor supply, productivity and income point of view. There may be some lessons for the rest of the world on what policies and institutions help make women productive in a nation's agricultural sector. Policies that insure equal access to land, regulations that dictate open access to credit, and economic development strategies that encourage competitive and efficient markets all contribute to an environment in which women farmers can succeed

The Education Gap of China's Migrant Children and Rural Counterparts ( file )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Abstract: Rural residents in China today face at least two key decisions: a) where to live and work; and b) where to send their children to school. In this paper we study the second decision: should a rural parent send their child to a public rural school or have him or her attend a private migrant school in the city. While there is an existing literature on the impact of this decision on student academic performance, one of the main shortcomings of current studies is that the data that are used to analyse this issue are not fully comparable. To fill the gap, we collected data on the educational performance of both migrant students who were born in and come from specific source communities (prefecture) in rural China and students who are in rural public schools in the same source communities. Specifically, the dataset facilitates our effort to measure and identity the academic gap between the students in private migrant schools in Shanghai and Suzhou and those in the public rural schools in Anhui. We also seek to identify different sources of the gap, including selection effects and observable school quality effects. According to the results of the analysis, there is a large gap. Students in public rural schools outperform students in private migrant schools by more than one standard deviation (SD). We found that selection effects only account for a small part of this gap. Both school facility effects and teacher effects explain the achievement gap of the students from the two types of schools, although these effects occur in opposite directions
