Figure 2: Change in the Share of SOE Output, 1978-1999
1. Data of 1979, 1981-1984 and 1986-1989 is calculated based on data released by the NBS, and other data is from the NBS’s China Statistical Yearbook (2000).
2. In 1995 and before, the state sector of economy included state-owned industrial enterprises; in 1996 and thereafter, the scope of the state sector of economy was changed to state-owned and state-controlled enterprises. This is why the data values of 1996 changed abruptly.
3. In 1998, the NBS modified the statistical scope of industrial enterprises. In order to compare with previous years, the NBS adjusted the data of 1998 and 1999. In principle, the data of 2000 and subsequent years is not fully compatible with data of previous years (see China Statistical Yearbook 2000 “13 -1 Number of Industrial Enterprises of Various Economic Types and Their Gross Output” Note 3).
