Hart-Landsberg’s and Burkett’s “China and Socialism: Market Reform
and Class Struggle” provides statistics. According to the “China
Statistical Yearbook 2002,” here is employment in state enterprises
and urban collectives in 2001.
Manufacturing, state enterprise share – 14.8 %
Domestic trade (wholesale & retail trade and eating
and drinking places), state enterprise share – 9.4 %
Manufacturing, urban collective share – 5.3 %
Domestic trade, urban collective share – 4.6 %
Among urban residents, 31.9 % are employed in state enterprises,
and 5.4 % are employed in urban collectives.
In rural areas in 2001, 26.7 % are employed in Township and Village
Enterprises. 17.9 % of the nation is employed in TVE. These are
described as “private operations in disguise.” The agricultural
economy has been de facto completely privatized since 1983.
Foreign funded enterprises account for a 50.8 % share of exports
and 50.1 % share of total trade.
According to the UN’s World Investment Report, foreign affiliates
account for 31.3 % of total manufacturing sales in China.

Burkett’s book here: http://bulatlat.com/news/5-34/5-34-mao.htm
