China – CN13 Added to LIS and a Major Update of CN02

One new dataset from China, CN13 (Wave IX) has been added to the LIS Database. The dataset is based on the fifth wave (CHIP2013) of the China Household Income Survey (CHIP) carried out by Chinese Institute for Income Distribution (CIID) with assistance from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

CN13 dataset covers three subsamples (rural, urban, and rural to urban migrants), the full integration of the income and expenditure variables in this wave, has allowed for more consistent harmonisation of the dataset.
The CN02 dataset has undergone a substantial revision to comply as much as possible with the latest wave, and in order to achieve better comparability between the 3 subsamples.

Main revisions for CN02 include:

  • Updating the weight variables to improve the representation of the 3 subsamples
  • Correcting an error in the individual labour income for the rural sub-sample
  • Revising/updating the variables to be more consistent across the 3 sub-samples
