The consumption structure in China has undergone a dramatic change since the economic reform started in late 1979. Durable goods ownership, an important aspect of overall consumption, has experi enced an even greater change both in variety and quantity. Analyses of general consumption in China are found in Lardy, Van der Gaag, Hu et al. and Zhang et al.1 Quantitative analysis devoted solely to durable goods consumption in Chinese cities has rarely been undertaken.
