Abstract
Based on the panel data in 1989-2014, the paper carries out an empirical research on skill premium focusing on the influence of industrial agglomeration and entry barriers. The results show that skill premium occurred in 1993 in China and since then it was expanded rapidly; the level of skill premium is highly correlated to the types and extent of the industrial agglomeration; barriers to entering the skilled labor market are positively correlated to skill premium.
