福建省城乡居民的消费行为存在着一定的差异,本文分别从消费水平和消费结构两大方面对此进行了比较分析。城乡居民消费水平的差距小于全国乃至东部沿海省份的平均差距,说明福建省城乡居民的贫富差距控制得相对较好,农民相对富裕;城乡居民的恩格尔系数同在2000年跨进50％的大关,达到小康水平,说明城乡居民的富裕程度虽有差别,但大体处于同一层次之中;城乡居民在储蓄和消费上的倾向略有不同,农村居民的波动较大;消费结构出现了明显的变动,城镇的变动程度大于农村。In term of level of consumption and consumption pattern, the author analyses the difference between urban and rural population in Fujian province. The study shows that the gap in level of consumption between urban and rural population in Fujian is narrowed compared with that of the nation and even the average disparity of coastal provinces in the eastern part of China and that the gap between the rich and the poor is controlled relatively well in Fujian province. Farmers are relatively better-off and Engel coefficients of the city and village both entered 50% in 2000 in Fujian. Though there are some differences in the deposit and the expense tendency between urban and rural inhabitants, the consumption pattern in rural areas has changed a lot.
