This interview study, co-authored by Keith Griffin and Zhao Renwei and conducted in 1989, attempts to measure and estimate the income distribution in rural and urban areas of the People's Republic of China in 1988. The population samples were selected from larger samples (67,186 rural households and 34,945 urban households) drawn by the State Statistical Bureau, and the data were collected for the analysis of individuals and households in both urban and rural areas. Similar studies were done in 1995 and 2002.
