List of cities in the People's Republic of China by GDP per capita

This list hopes to rank cities of the People's Republic of China by GDP per capita in Renminbi (), aka yuan ().

According to administrative divisions of China, there are three level of cities: municipalities, prefecture-level cities, and county-level cities.

A prefecture-level city () is not a "city" in the strictest sense of the term, but instead an administrative unit comprising, typically, both an urban core (a city in the strict sense) and surrounding rural or less-urbanized areas usually many times the size of the central, built-up core. Prefecture-level cities nearly always contain multiple counties, county-level cities, and other such sub-divisions. To distinguish a prefecture-level city from its actual urban area (city in the strict sense), the term shìqū ("urban area"), is used.

Methods and accuracy in the reporting of population and economic activity vary widely, so these figures can be seen as estimates rather than facts. Some cities with significant numbers of migrant workers do not include them in the population count, even though the output they generate are counted in the total GDP, resulting in wildly inflated GDP per capita. Examples include Dongguan and Guangzhou. Other cities, such as Shanghai, do include migrant workers in their total population count, resulting in lower per capita GDP.
