Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_CD_CTY_POPAG_GIS


Summary
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

Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To provide information on China's population and agricultural economy from the 1990 census, and geocoded 1990 China county boundary GIS data at
