This paper measures China's market integration by the price difference among regions of eight categories of goods and service. We select tradable goods price data of China's 36 cities in twelve years. We calculate the overall and classified Gini coefficients to analyze integration level of China's market and classified goods and service markets. The result shows that the market price difference among regions is not very large and presents decrease trend, which indicates that China's market integration level is increasingly high. In addition, the market integration levels of foods, household equipment and supplies, alcohol and tobacco are very high, which have contributed to the realization of regional market integration.
