China Data Online service

The China Data Online service is the officially sanctioned databank for Chinese economic statistics. Initiated by the All China Commercial Network, China Data Online is authorized by China’s National Bureau of Statistics. Data is available in both English and Chinese. Subject coverage includes national, provincial and city level statistics, and featured content extends from macroeconomic statistics to population information. Also included are statistics and data for over 560 major industrial sectors. Much of the data is available in monthly and yearly increments. The database also provides users with an online digital atlas of China.

Link to it via the library home page under Databases by Title. Access to China Data Online is limited to one user at a time and requires a username (louiseg) and a password (vufml2006).
