Abstract

We draw data from the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS) to investigate the education gradient in the current well-being of a representative sample of the Chinese population aged 45 or over. We analyse how the education gradient combines with the marked differences in the social policies implemented in rural and urban China.

Keywords: Education, multidimensional well-being index, rural and urban China

JEL Classification: J14, I31, I24
