That was an increase of 6.3 percent over that of 2022, or a real increase of 6.1 percent after deducting price factors. In addition, the median per capita disposable income nationwide was 33,036 yuan, up 5.3 percent from 2022.

With the increase in income, there was also an increase in per capita consumption expenditure. In 2023, this figure went up 9.2 percent, or a real increase of 9.0 percent after deducting price factors, reaching 26,796 yuan.

The per capita consumption expenditure on services went up 14.4 percent, accounting for 45.2 percent of the per capita consumption expenditure, 2.0 percentage points higher than that of the previous year. This shows that the Chinese economy has regained vitality in the post-COVID period.
