Distribution of provincial GDP and other countries
Note: I am working by 2009 data. While 2010 data are out, they are not yet presented in a form easy to read and consult.
Guizhou is by far the poorest at US$ 1502. The next poorest, Gansu, at US$ 1879, is over 25 % richer.
For comparison, see the countries at:
2009 data in middle column.
Outer Mongolia, at US$ 1573, is close to Guizhou. And note contrast with Inner Mongolia!
After Gansu, 11 other provinces, 4 autonomous regions and 1 city of poorer China. Jilin at US$ 3848 is over twice as rich as Gansu, but the biggest gaps between units is slightly over 10 % between US$ 1975 of Yunnan and US$ 2216 of Tibet, and US$ 2538 of Sichuan to US$ 2806 of Hainan.
And then there is another 25% gap between US$ 3848 and US$ 4838 of Fujian.
Which starts the set of 7 rich units. Extending to Zhejian at US$ 6490, about 35 % richer than Fujian.
The 6 rich provinces are Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shandong and Liaoning. And the autonomous region of Inner Mongolia.
Why is Inner Mongolia so rich?
The 6 rich provinces are all coastal. But not the whole coast. The poor coastal units are Guangxi, Hainan and Hebei. Why are they poor?
Among the Asian tigers, slightly richer but closer to China, at US$ 3894, is Thailand, whose population of 66 millions is typical for a Chinese province.
How fast is China developing compared to Thailand? How long would it take for China to pass the GDP per capita of Thailand?
And the next Asian tiger is Malaysia. At US$ 6975, it is richer than Zhejiang at US$ 6490.
How fast is China developing compared to Malaysia? How long would it take before Zhejiang or Jiangsu passes Malaysia?
