How many people have a monthly salary of 5,000 yuan? Not as much as you think

80% of Chinese wages are below 5,000 yuan.

The above picture shows the income distribution. In 2016, the high-income group accounted for 20%, and the annual per capita income did not exceed 6 Ten, this means that the monthly salary has not exceeded 5,000 yuan. Of course, this is the figure for 2016, but most people actually don’t change their income very much. The 80% ratio should not change much.

Only 20% of the monthly salary of 5,000 or more, but according to the financial department, after the tax threshold is raised to 5,000 yuan, only 64 million people need to pay taxes! This actually accounts for only 15% of urban employment, and the proportion of China's 1.3 billion people is even lower, only 5%~

August 31, Vice Minister of Finance When Li Hua answered questions about the tax threshold, he revealed the clues. She said, "Only by the basic deduction of the cost standard to 5,000 yuan per month to measure, the proportion of taxpayers in the personal income tax after the law-raising will be reduced from the current 44% to 15%."

The Statistical Communiqué on the Development of Human Resources and Social Security in 2017 (hereinafter referred to as the “Gazette”), the “Gazette” shows that as of the end of 2017, the number of employed people in urban areas in China was 424.62 million, according to Cheng Lihua. Given the proportion calculation, at present, the personal income tax taxpayer is about 187 million people. After the individual tax reform, the personal income tax taxpayer number is about 64 million, which will reduce about 123 million people.

The official data may have missed a lot of statistics. For example, there is no statistics on township employment. Some self-employed households and small boss groups should have a large number of people. Taken together, there should be hundreds of millions of people with a monthly salary of 5,000 yuan, and about 10% should be no problem.

So, how many people are in the monthly income?

According to the relevant provisions of the tax law, if the annual income is more than 120,000 yuan (the monthly salary is more than 10,000 yuan), the taxation declaration shall be submitted to the competent tax authority in accordance with the regulations. But in fact, the proportion of 120,000 tax returns is very small in the total number of people in the city.

In some third- and fourth-tier cities, the taxpayers with an annual salary of more than 120,000 yuan account for less than 1% of the total urban population. Even in the eastern developed cities of Suzhou and Shenzhen, the number of taxpayers with an annual salary of 120,000 yuan in 2016 did not exceed 5% of the population of the city.

The number of people earning more than 10,000 a month has exceeded 3.15 million since 2011, an amazing growth rate in recent years. In terms of numbers, the number of people in 2017 is almost certainly over 10 million, estimated at around 15 million.

So, a person with a million-year income should be considered a very small number of people. The probability is no more than 7 million, which is 1% of the employed population.
