More importance has been attached to the grading and land price evaluation of a city than to the gradation of different cities in the present land market. This paper discusses the main factors influencing urban land grading and then chooses 64 middle or small cities in Jiangsu Province for empirical analyses. Six factors and 20 indexes are selected for synthetical evaluation. The result of the research indicates that the land of the 64 cities in Jiangsu Province can be divided into 6 grades. The paper also makes an analysis of the distribution of grades in different belts, in different groups of sizes and in city proper and offers some advice for the policy making based on a discussion of the characteristics and laws of urban land distribution of the province.
