The author focuses on the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, including 47 prefecture level cities of Yunnan, Guizhou, Sichuan provinces, and Chongqing City. The entropy method was employed to assess environmental stress in these regions, and the spatiotemporal patterns of environmental stress was analyzed through the Dagum Gini coefficient, Markov chain, and spatial convergence model, etc. The dataset includes the following data in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River from 1998 to 2021: (1) environmental pressure values for 47 prefecture level cities; (2) the Dagum Gini coefficient and its decomposition of environmental pressure; (3) probability matrixes of multi-period Markov chain transitions of environmental pressure; (4) five control variable values for the convergence analysis of environmental pressure, they are economic development level, industrial gradient level, industrial structure, consumption vitality, investment propensity; (5) a spatial weight matrix constructed based on adjacency relationships for the 47 prefecture level cities. The dataset is archived in .xlsx format, and consists of one file with data size of 138 KB. The analysis paper based on the dataset will be coordinated with Acta Geographica Sinica, Vol. 79, No. 5, 2024.
