摘要

Exploring the prefectural policies that permanently and temporarily increase pension levels in urban China, we use the monthly panel data from Urban Household Survey (UHS) to examine the household responses in an event study setting. For each pension increase, the reform on average increases both permanent and transitory pension incomes among the eligible households, respectively. Based on the responses in the consumption, our estimates yield an estimate of marginal propensity to consume (MPC) being 0.48-0.63 for permanent income but 0-0.10 for transitory income. The consumption responses differ by consumption categories. The estimated MPC is much larger among the households with lower income. By contrast, in the estimating window period, we find no significant changes in other household incomes, including wage, property, business or transfers, or other outcomes such as household size, structure, and individual labor supply. Among the non-eligible households, we find no significant effects on all the above outcomes.
