This paper reconstructs the occupational structure of Dongguan in the Pearl River Delta Region (PRDR) since the 1940s, using an original data source of a high school survey. This method, namely “Oral Quantitative History”, provides us with a new perspective and evidence to identify the changes in economic and social structure that occurred in the PRDR , and to assess the causal role of Deng Xiaoping’s reforms of 1978. The reliability and correction of the data source are also discussed in this paper, via a comparison with traditional data sources such as the census and yearbooks.
