Based on the Gini coefficient of human capital in 2004 and the per capita GDP data from 2005 to 2015, this paper analyses the relationship between the inequality of human capital and the long-term growth rate of regional economy. During the period of this analysis, the degree of human capital inequality has a positive impact on the rate of economic growth. Combined with the previous literature, the results show that China's economic growth in this period is still mainly dependent on fixed assets rather than human capital.
