Abstract: GDP can reflect the level of urban economic development to some extent, but high GDP does not necessarily lead to high incomes, especially in resource-based cities which are cities taking the processing and mining of natural resources as its leading industry. This paper uses income share to reflect the proportion of per capita disposable income in per capita GDP, and conducts the following research. First, The spatial distribution of the coupling type between output and income share is analyzed. Second, exploring the regression relationship between income share and per capita GDP in resource-based cities and other cities. On this basis, analyze the differences in the regression relationship of four types resource-based cities. Finally, a multivariate linear regression model was established to analyze the influencing factors of income share. The results show that: 1) Most resource-based cities in the north have high output and low income share, while in the south they have the opposite. 2) Under the high economic development level, the income share of resource-based cities is less than that of other cities. 3) Under the high economic development level, the income share of the four resource-based cities is ranked as: Regeneration > Decay > Mature > Growth. 4) Industrial structure and market characteristics are important factors affecting income share.
