China's Provincial GovtEdPubGDP
GovtEdPub%GDP was calculated using data from China_Statistical_Yearbooks 2008-2016. Chapter 7 Government Finance Table 6 General Public Expenditure in the column named Expenditure for Education is where the education expenditure data is located in the 2016 China Statistical Yearbook. The education expenditure data was then divided by GDP and multiplied by 100 to yield the series. There is more historical data available, but it is not being used because the GDP data for those years is questionable.
