Disposable income was at 8,231 yuan (1,205 U.S. dollars) per capita in 2009 for Chongqing's urban residents relocated to make way for the Three Gorges project, said the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) of China Sunday.

The figure was 11.5 percent up from the previous year, according to a statement on the NBS website.

The growth could mainly be attributed to the steady rise in salaries as the local government had taken measures to increase employment opportunities for relocated residents, according to the announcement.
