【讲坛内容摘要】

Using national representative longitudinal household survey data from China, we examine the effect of income inequality on subjective wellbeing. Taking into account the potential problem of endogeneity, we obtain two findings. First, people feel unhappy with between-group inequality, as measured by the income gap between two types of residents according to their hukou (household register), irrespective of whether they are rural hukou residents or urban hukou residents. Second, the effect of inequality on subjective wellbeing is stronger for rural hukou residents than for urban hukou residents. The findings are robust to the choice of inequality measure and subjective indicator. They suggest that for a society with identity-related social segmentation, social integration and narrowing identity-related inequality require urgent action to achieve justice, promote development and improve subjective wellbeing.
