ABSTRACT

Equity is a core value pursued by modern society and a principle of distribution based on justice and equality. The degree of fairness in a community reflects its level of development and livelihood welfare. Therefore, social equity issues, such as employment and schooling, income distribution, and the social security system, have become a significant concern in current sociological research. Given the large size of Chinese society, analyzing its social inequality requires a more scientific and comprehensive perspective. This paper aims to study the current inequality in Chinese society from the empirical perspective to explore the root causes and solutions of social inequality.
