Incidentally, it is US$1.25 per day, that's the extreme poverty line.
The average 2010income for China was US$4,270
13.1% of population was on or below poverty line in2008
These figures are much better than those from sub-Saharan countries or South Asian countries.
Based on these figures n the statistical trend, I cannot see how China can continue to sell itself as a cheap labour manufacturer for the world.
