Coastal areas of China include provinces and regions of Liaoning, Hebei, Tianjin, Shandong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Fujian, Taiwan, Guangdong, Hong Kong, Macao, Guangxi and Hainan. The Dataset of Regional Economic Resilience and Industrial Evolution Path in China's Coastal Areas (2002-2017) was developed based on export product data and national economic accounting data of coastal areas in China (data of Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan are unavailable), integrated with the calculating method of regional economic resilience proposed by Martin et al. (2016) and the method of identifying new industrial path dependence and path creation proposed by Coniglio et al. (2018). This dataset includes the following data in the coastal areas from 2002 to 2017: (1) regional economic resilience; (2) new industries of 2-digit HS codes; (3) industrial evolution path dependence; (4) industrial evolution path creation; (5) other variables affecting the regional economic resilience; (6) economic resilience and its influencing factors of major cities in Yangtze River Delta from 2002 to 2016. The dataset is archived in .xlsx format, and consists of one file with data size of 124 KB. The analysis paper based on this dataset will be coordinated published in Acta Geographica Sinica, Vol. 78, No. 4, 2023.
