New Chinese Resource: National Population Census of China Database

The Yale University Library users now have the access to another NEW Chinese language resource, National Population Census of China Database 中国人口普查数据库. It has been added to the Library’s Orbis online catalog, Summon database list, and Chinese Studies subject guide.

National Population Census of China Database 中国人口普查数据库 collects all data of population census in 2010 published by China Statistics Press, including all population data of the whole country, 31 provinces and centrally administered municipalities and 2872 units at county level. The contents of data are name, gender, age, nationality, permanent residence registration, education level, industry, occupation, social security, marriage, fertility, death, housing, migration and others. All statistical data forms are able to be downloaded into Excel format for further searching, browsing and analyzing.

In addition to the Chinese language interface, an English interface will become available shortly in March 2014. Searching ”National population census full-text database” on Orbis would generate a list of the 39 titles of 2010 Chinese Census we purchased this time.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the databases. You are also welcome to schedule an individual session to learn more about any Chinese online resources.
