Data Notes

1Before 2002, internet penetration rate data was not reported in CNNIC published documents. This data has been estimated from the provincial proportion of total internet users as listed in the annual CNNIC report multiplied by the year-end provincial population, as determined by the National Bureau of Statistics of China Statistical Yearbook. This definition is provided here: "The annual statistics on total population is taken at midnight, the 3lst of December, not including residents in Taiwan province, Chinese compatriots in Hong Kong and Macao and overseas Chinese."
