Using a representative household survey, we document how the wage structure in urban China evolved between 1995 and 2013. We find that (1) wage gaps in education, gender, and age increased significantly since 1995, and it is educational gap that contributes most to the increased wage inequality. Importantly, the returns to education remain high after 2007 despite the large inflow of the highly educated work force. (2) regional inequality first increased between 1995 and 2007 and then declined after 2007; the regional wage gap for less educated workers converged but that of the educated did not. (3) residual wage inequality increased and the within inequality of the educated workers increased faster than that of the less educated. (4) the rising wage inequality is mainly due to price effects.
