Abstract [en]

The authors analyzed the relative economic performances as measured by gross domestic product (GDP) among 18 districts in Beijing between 1993-2002 and 2005-2007. The statistical models use a traditional shift-share analysis evaluated with SPSS software. District competitiveness was decomposed into ten selected factors, including resource utility and environmental quality. The results indicate that, between 1993-2002, districts in the city-center were more competitive than districts in the suburbs. After 2005, suburban districts increased their competitiveness at a faster rate than those in the city. In addition, the authors try to identify the driving forces of economic growth in Beijing. Five factors were found to have a significant impact on GDP competitiveness of 18 districts in Beijing; finance income, employment density, average wages, and air quality all had positive effects, while population density had a negative effect. These results will be useful for planning future economic growth and specialization for districts around Beijing.
