Key national statistics such as demographic and economic indicators (GDP, unemployment, population, etc). To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • GDP for the whole country updated at least quarterly
  • Unemployment statistics updated at least monthly
  • Population updated at least once a year

Data Location

Comments is the data portal managed by the National Statistics Bureau.

It provides:

  1. Quarterly and Yearly GDP for the whole country
  2. Yearly Unemployment statistics
  3. Yearly population data

However, based upon the new minimum criteria set by index (2015 version), that means China does not have the right statistic data opened up by the government.
