Meta-analysis of Chinese business cycle correlation
() and Iikka Korhonen
Abstract: We summarize previous research on China’s business cycle
correlation with other countries with the help of meta-analysis techniques.
We survey 71 related papers along with all the characteristics of the
estimations as well as those of the authors. We confirm that especially
Pacific Rim countries have relatively high business cycle correlation with
China. However, it appears that many characteristics of the studies and
authors do influence the reported degree of business cycle synchronization.
For instance, Chinese-language papers report higher correlation
coefficients. Despite of this, we do not detect a robust publication bias
in the papers.
