Abstract

With the accelerated process of urbanization, the increasing demands of the population and the imbalance in the provision of basic public services among regions have become key factors constraining regional development. This study establishes a measurement index system for the equalization level of basic public services, and combines the subjective and objective weighting method with the Gini coefficient method to measure the comprehensive development level of basic public service equalization in 11 cities in Zhejiang Province and the developmental differences across various dimensions. Additionally, ArcGIS and GeoDa software are utilized to analyze the spatial disparities of these cities in terms of the dimensions of basic public services. The study reveals that the comprehensive development level of basic public services in Zhejiang Province is generally uneven, with most cities experiencing shortages in basic public services. While there are no significant disparities among dimensions, there are relatively large gaps in the development levels of basic education, public culture, and ecological environment among cities. Furthermore, several dimensions and the comprehensive development level exhibit localized spatial agglomeration characteristics, particularly in Jinhua and Jiaxing, where improvements in the equalization of basic public service development are urgently needed.
