Ethnic stratification in Northwest China: Occupational Differences Between Han Chinese and National Minorities in Xinjiang, 1982-1990

Publication Abstract

Hannum, Emily, and Yu Xie. 1998. "Ethnic stratification in Northwest China: Occupational Differences Between Han Chinese and National Minorities in Xinjiang, 1982-1990." Demography, 35(3): 323-333.

The debate on market reforms and social stratification in China has paid very little attention to China's ethnic minorities. Rising occupational stratification by ethnicity is explored in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Analyses of census data from 1982 and 1990 pointed to educational disadvantages faced by ethnic minorities as the most plausible explanation for the change. Multivariate analysis revealed a significant increase in the effect of education on high-status occupational attainment but to change in the effect of ethnicity. Net of education, ethnic differences in high-status occupational attainment were negligible. In contrast, large ethnic differences in manufacturing and agricultural occupations persisted after education and geography were statistically controlled.
