Note: /1 This population consists of three groups: (1) population with residence registered in other township, town, or sub-district, but having actually resided in this enumeration area for more than half a year; (2) Population with residence registered in other township, town, or sub-district, but having actually resided in this enumeration area for less than half a year; (3) Population with residence registration in this enumeration area not yet settled.
The table should be read as follows: Of the 1.25 million people in this sample survey 1.18 million actually lived in the township, town, or subdistrict, where they are registered. Some 67,800 people, however were not registered were they lived, but in some other township, town, or subdistrict. Please also note that this is not a 1% but a 1.028% survey of the population. If we adjusted for the total population we can conclude that some 69.7 million people (or about 5.4 % of the population) in China did not live where they were registered.The percentage of people who do not live where they are registered is, however, much higher in Beijing and Shanghai, where 18.1% and 11.3% of the population where registered outside the area where they actually lived. The data in this table are from the Sample Survey on Population Changes in 1996, which had a sampling fraction of 1.028 of the total population.
