Beijing's per capita property income surged 13.1 percent year on year in 2017, 3.4 percentage points higher than the previous year, the municipal statistics bureau said.

Net property income hit 9,306 yuan (about 1,467 U.S. dollars) on average last year, the bureau said.

Wages and salaries still account for the majority of the disposable income in Beijing.

Beijing's per capita income from wages and salaries increased 6.4 percent year on year to 35,217 yuan last year, according to the bureau.
