Based on new statistical materials from the United Nations as well as from historical research into various countries around the world，this paper arrives at an estimate of value added of Chinese and world industries between 1850 and 2012. In doing so，we not only modify past work from the scholar Paul Bairoch, but also arrive at significantly different conclusions about China ’s position in world industrialization.
