  1. See Table 2 for regression specifications. Sample is identical to Table 5B, dropping Tibet which has only one observation. Per capita GDP refers to 2008–2010, measured in logs and standardized. Railroad distance (from Bodvarsson et al. 2014) is between the capital cities of the origin province and Fujian and is normalized to have a mean of zero for the non-Fujian provinces. Standard errors in parentheses are clustered by ad. ***p < 0.01, **p < 0.05, *p < 0
