I found your website section ‘China: Facts and Figures’ charts to be very useful. But I couldn't find what sources you use your data from. Are they governmental sources? From a census? Please advise.
Dear Irene Young,
The feature, 'China: Facts and Figures,' on our website contains the most updated information on China's economic and social development which is released from the National Bureau of Statistics under the State Council. It's published by Beijing Review, a weekly magazine from the State Council Information Center.
We hope this answers your question.
