Exploring Internet Penetration Effects on China’s Economy

Bing Li, Xiaoxia Zhang, and Haiyan Gao
Abstract—China’s economy has emerged as one of the largest economies in the world. Meanwhile, e-business is playing an increasingly important role in China’s economic system. This paper attempts to evaluate the e-business’s impact on China’s economy by empirically analyzing the relationship between China’s GDP and some statistical data related to Internet penetration. National and provincial analyses are made and the results support that China’s economy is influenced by Internet penetration.

Index Terms—E-business, internet penetration, regression, factor analysis.
