This informal talk is about the Rural Fixed Point Panel Survey of China (1986-) administered by the Central Committee Policy Research Office and the Ministry of Agriculture, and its potential for supporting empirical research on rural China. This is a large (around 200 villages and 20,000 households) panel dataset encompassing almost all aspects of rural economic life. He is going to briefly talk about some research projects in the embryonic stage, some of which are interdisciplinary in nature.
