China's economy maintained a rapid growth at the same time , regional economic differences also become more obvious . To solve this problem , many scholars from different angles, its research, and proposed a variety of theories . This shows that the issue of regional economic differences have not yet formed a unified and mature theory , there are still many deficiencies , but also worthy of further study and explore . This article from the perspective of total factor productivity (TFP) reason for the change of the formation and development of China 's regional economic differences and statistical analysis . This article first made ??a literature review of domestic and foreign scholars theoretical and empirical research on regional economic differences and total factor productivity (TFP) , and then proceed from the regional economic substance using cluster analysis in 28 provincial - level administrative region is divided into three regions. Again as measured by GDP per capita labor two measure of the Theil entropy and sample variance analysis of regional economic differences , found that China 's regional economic differences can be divided into 1978-1986 and 1987-2005 two stages . The first stage mainly for economic differences between the provincial - level administrative regions , the latter stages of the main differences between the three regions . Then the author calculated the total factor productivity of the three major regions during 1978-2005 and provincial-level administrative regions , and regional economic differences between the two phases of the two geographical variance decomposition analysis , from the perspective of total factor productivity empirical analysis of the reason for the change in the formation and development of China 's regional economic differences . The results show that : whether for the 1978-1986 provincial Chief geographical areas determined economic differences or 1987-2005 economic differences determined by the three major geographical regions , different level of total factor productivity is caused by China 's regional economic differences an important reason , the total factor productivity can be explained in large part of China 's regional economic differences .
