"Impact of Digital Economy on Chinese Regional Economy——Empirical Analysis Based on Chinese Regional SAM "
by Zhou, Lingling, Shantong Li and Jianwu He

Nowadays, there is a consensus that the digital economy provides a new impetus for Chinese economic development, but there are obvious features such as "Matthew Effect" and "Digital Divide" in regional digital economy development. In this article, we use a purposively elaborated 2017 Chinese inter-provincial SAM for Chinese province with 42 industries, on whose basis we identify endogenous and exogenous accounts, set up an innovative impact multiplier model. This paper briefly introduces China's inter-provincial social accounting matrix, and we decompose impact of Chinese regional digital economy into transfer multiplier effect, open-loop multiplier effect and closed-loop multiplier effect.
There are many findings as follows: (1) Impact on the income of skilled workers is higher than that of production workers and agricultural labor income promotion, which indicates that the development of the digital economy may crowd out the relative income of low-skilled and middle-skilled laborers, whether it is the one unit input of the "communication equipment, computer and other electronic equipment" or "information transmission, software and information technology services" industry. (2) From the perspective of urban-rural differences, the unit input of "information transmission, software and information technology services" will widen the income gap between urban and rural residents in eastern provinces such as Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Jiangsu, and Guangdong to a certain extent, which is beneficial to narrow the income gap between urban and rural areas in Tibet, Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia and other western provinces. It can be inferred from this that "information transmission, software and information technology services" may promote to narrow the income gap between urban and rural residents.
