Abstract
A provincial capital has an important influence on the development of regional economy as the focus of one province in China. Studying the panel data of 19 provinces from 2000 to 2016, we find there exists provincial capital bias that the ratio of the provincial capital’s population in a province is increasing. We construct a regression model to study the influence of provincial capital bias on economic growth. The result shows that provincial capital bias significantly promotes the growth of provincial economy.
