China Dimensions Data Collection: China County-Level Data on Population (Census) and Agriculture, Keyed to 1:1M GIS MapEntry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_CD_CTY_POPAG_GIS
Abstract: China County-Level Data on Population (Census) and Agriculture, Keyed To 1:1M GIS Map consists of census, agricultural economic, and boundary data for the administrative regions of China for 1990. The census data includes urban and rural residency, age and sex distribution, educational attainment, illiteracy, marital status, childbirth, mortality, immigration (since 1985), industrial/economic ... activity, occupation, and ethnicity. The agricultural economic data encompasses rural population, labor force, forestry, livestock and fishery, commodities, equipment, utilities, irrigation, and output value. The boundary data are at a scale of one to one million (1:1M) at the county level. This dataset is produced in collaboration with the University of Washington as part of the China in Time and Space (CITAS) project, University of California-Davis China in Time and Space (CITAS) project, and the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
The data in ARC/INFO Export (ARCE) and dBase IV (DBF) formats are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
Purpose: To provide information on China's population and agricultural economy from the 1990 census, and geocoded 1990 China county boundary GIS data at 1:1M.
