Abstract
Based on demographic data from the newly available 6th census of 2010 in Guangzhou metropolitan areas, China, we established an alternative method of evaluating residential income level by using housing rent in urban statistical areas. Then we analysed the differentiation pattern and spatial structure of household income level. Finally, we explored the differentiation rule of household income level in 4 ring-layers. We found the following results. The spatial pattern of income level of Guangzhou, gradually better form periphery to centre, shows a significant spatial imbalance. The 'ring-layer' spatial differentiation structure and 'fan-shaped' extending structure are coexisting. Furthermore, the historical process of urban development, the evolution of urban function structure, and differentiation of housing prices are the core driving factors for the formation of spatial structure of household income level in Guangzhou.
