Constructing a comprehensive prosperity evaluation index system from the dimensions of “affluence” and “commonality,” consisting of 23 detailed indicators, this study utilizes the entropy method and provincial panel data from 2011 to 2020 to measure the level of common prosperity across Chinese provinces. The research findings indicate an overall upward trend in the common prosperity development level among provinces during the sample period. Beijing, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Guangdong, and Jiangsu exhibit the highest common prosperity indices at the provincial level. From a spatial perspective, significant disparities exist in the common prosperity levels among different regions. Consequently, policy recommendations are proposed: Tailoring strategies for regional development based on realities, reinforcing regional coordinated development, and promoting the advancement of common prosperity.
