Natalie A.E. Young and Emily Hannum Publish Article on Implications of Rising Inequality with The China Quarterly

Natalie A.E. Young and Emily C. Hannum published an article on the implications of rising inequality in China for the lives of children in The China Quarterly. The paper, "Childhood Inequality in China: Evidence from Recent Survey Data (2012-2014)", draws on data from two nationally representative surveys to reveal stark disparities between children from different socio-economic backgrounds in family environments and in welfare outcomes, including physical health, psychosocial health, and educational performance. Young and Hannum find that childhood inequality in post-reform China is driven not only by the deprivations of poverty, but also by the advantages of affluence.
