Average Wages in China

One of the main reasons for teachers moving to China has been the increase in wages combined with the low cost of living resulting in higher standards of living. However when considering your wage you should also compare yourself with the average wage of local people as the different provinces have vastly different wages. As well as the different provinces there is also a big gap between pay in cities and the countryside.  A yearly salary of 120k rmb goes a lot further in the countryside of Gansu than it does living in Shanghai. The data is from 2015, with Jilin and Tibet being from 2014.
