A Marginal Comparative Study on Cultural Consumption of Chinese Urban and Rural Residents

Shiqi Liu, Qidan Jiang, Huiqing Li


This paper uses the data of per capita cultural consumption and per capita disposable income of urban and rural residents from 2000 to 2020 to study the marginal tendency of cultural consumption of urban and rural residents in my country through the dummy variable model. Empirical research shows that both urban and rural residents' cultural consumption and income show a significant positive correlation. By comparison, it can be found that the rural residents in China are significantly backward than urban residents in such respects as total cultural consumption volume, proportion of cultural consumption in their incomes, and the consumption ability related to cultural marginal propensity. Therefore, when formulating corresponding policies, it is particularly necessary to formulate appropriate policies to promote the development of rural cultural undertakings in accordance with the actual conditions in rural areas of China.
