Note: Data in 1982-1989 were adjusted on the basis of China's 1982 and 1990 national population censuses. Since 1990, data have been estimated on the basis of the annual National Sample Survey on Population Changes. Data for other years were taken from the annual reports of the Ministry of Public Security. Data include military personnel, but exclude the population of Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan.
