Poverty is a critical issue that requires attention that not only on a global scale but also on a national scale within China. As widespread societal challenges, the issue of poverty has profound implications for the well-being of people and development of nations. This study aims to examine the influences of policy related variables on poverty rates in the rural areas within China. Data acquired from 267 prefecture-level cities from years 2011-2019 were collected and analyzed, and the results demonstrate that government expenditure on education, government expenditure on technology and the ratio of tertiary industry all have significantly negative relationships with poverty rates. The interaction effects between these three variables reveal that when each of the two factors are both higher, the poverty rates would be further lower. The findings in this study indicate that government expenditure on education and technology and the ratio of tertiary industry can substantially diminish the level of poverty in rural areas within China. The implications of these findings for policymaking and potential future research directions are thoroughly discussed.
