I am looking for a chart from a reliable source that lists income
ranges and the number of people in each range in China.
I'd like the data to be broken down by year, beginning between
2000-2003 and forecasted through 2010-2015.

Researchers, if you could please comment if this question is priced
too low, I'd appreciate it. My last question was not answered.

Thank you for your comments.

Perhaps I can simplify this question. What I am really trying to
determine is the number of people in China who could potentially
afford to pay for high-priced branded pharmaceutical drugs.

I am already aware of numerous publications stating that there is a
significant and growing market in China for biopharmaceuticals, but
the majority of this market is the less expensive generic
biopharmaceuticals, such as insulin. I am interested in understanding
the market potential for high-priced biotechnology drugs such as
Rituxan or Erbitux.

Can someone find a source that estimates the number and growth rate of
middle and upper class people in China? Or, is there any free
information on the internet that specifically addresses the market
potential for high-priced biopharmaceuticals in China? I would
consider the question sufficiently answered if either of these two
questions was addressed.

Please comment if the question is still priced too low.
There is no answer at this time.

I'd say that the question is definitely priced too low for an answer
to be received.  To ask for data in each income range for a range of
10 years or more is asking quite a bit of a research project (possibly
a few hours even).  If the information is worth something to you, you
will probably have to raise the price.

I think the price would be reasonable _if_ such information were
reasonably available. But considering the nature of the Chinese
government, I'd be surprised to find such info, reliable or not,
anywhere accessible by the Internet.
