Power Structure Issue Priorities and Attention Dynamics of Leaders from 2001 to 2017 in China

Abstract
Abstract This article explores the allocation of and competition for political attention in China. Responding to outside policy signals the leader’s instructions from the ruling Party carry the highest political authority and set the agenda for high-level policy as do the Premier’s instructions to the administration. These political instructions are used to measure political attention from 2001 to 2017. A textual analysis of political instructions transmitted via supervised machine learning reveals that Chinese leaders’ attention to policy issues is characterized by punctuated equilibriums. This helps us to understand how central leaders organize their attention through issue stability issue diversity and issue competition in China.
