Prefectures of China

The first-level divisions of China are provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities directly under the central government. Karem Abdalla has sent me a list of 345 second-level subdivisions of China, with populations, areas, and capitals. I haven't had time to verify them, and I wasn't able to correlate them with the old 1982 divisions given below. Therefore, the HASC codes in the first table below are not related to those in the second table, but should supersede them like writing on a palimpsest.

  • Name: Many of the autonomous prefecture names end with the name of the predominant
    ethnic group. For example, "Boertala Menggu" should be understood as an autonomous
    prefecture named Boertala, inhabited mainly by Menggu (Mongols). The 'Typ' is usually
    appended to the name as a generic.
  • Typ: zizhizhou (a=autonomous prefecture), shixiaxian (c), meng (l=league), diqu (p=prefecture),
    shixiaqu (q), sheng (s), danwei (w), or shi (y=city).
  • HASC: Hierarchical administrative subdivision codes. The middle two letters identify the
    province. For key, see Provinces of China page.
  • GB: Guobiao 2260 province codes (append 00 to get six-digit codes).
  • Population: 1999-12-31 estimate. Source: Chinese National Bureau of Statistics.
  • Area: Figures provided by Karem Abdalla.

 

The Population Atlas of China gives a different, undoubtedly outdated, list of second-level divisions. It says that the second-level divisions are prefectures (diqu), autonomous prefectures (zizhizhou), leagues (meng - Nei Mongol only), administrative districts (xingzhengqu), prefectural or provincial cities, and districts (qu - only in the municipalities). The third-level divisions are counties (xian), autonomous counties (zizhixian), banners (qi), autonomous banners (zizhiqi), county-level cities, and districts (only in prefectural cities). The following list shows all 371 second-level divisions of China as of 1982-06-30 (the date of the 1982 census), using the Pinyin transcription.
