Abstract
Taking the population as the weight and the weight of income as indicators to measure the economic differences in the three major regions of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, and using the Theil index to describe the degree of economic disparity in the three regions. The results show that the degree of economic disparity among the three major regions of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei is obvious, and the resource endowments, historical humanities and regional policies may be the main reasons for the obvious regional economic differences. Under the weighted comparison of population and income, there is no difference between the northern ecological area and the southern development area. The Theil index with the weight of income in the central core area is higher than the population weighted Theil index. At the end, there are targeted proposals and countermeasures to narrow regional economic disparities.
