Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: Spatialized population data is of great importance in supporting the studies on transportation, geography, socio-economy, sustainable development etc. In this paper, we collect the population data in district-county level of six Population Censuses in China from 1949. With the administrative division in 2010, which is the year of the sixth Population Census, as the benchmark of the geographical region of the districts and counties, population data is calibrated and spatialized. Finally, the GIS Population Datasets for Six Population Censuses in China are produced.
Keywords: population census; spatialization; district-county; China
