Analysis of China's Higher Education Development among Various Provinces: Based on the Evidence of Higher Education Development Index
Based on a literature review of educational development index and the current status of higher education development in China， the study establishes a framework of higher education development index with three secondary indicators and four tertiary indicators， including higher education opportunity index， higher education investment index and higher education quality index. Key findings are summarized as follows: Generally speaking， the level of higher education development is higher in eastern China than in western and central China. Specifically， the higher education opportunity index of eastern China is significantly higher than that of western and central China， with no obvious difference between western China and central China; differences in higher education investment index between provinces are significant; the higher education quality indices of Beijing and Shanghai are significantly higher than those of other provinces. The level of higher education development is affected by the level of economic development and population scale to a great extent， as well as by national policies and geographical environment to some extent.
