China National Statistical Database 中国国家统计数据库

China National Statistical Database 中国国家统计数据库.

Developed by China’s National Bureau of Statistics, this database seems to be a product still under development. It seems to be compatible with the Internet Explorer, but not Firefox (thanks to Yuh-fen Benda of Vanderbilt for discovering the issue). The instruction (in Chinese) is available here. I certainly welcome anyone who has experience with it to comment here.

In addition, the official web site of the National Bureau of Statistics of China 中华人民共和国国家统计局 provides useful information about the Chinese statistical system and links to sites of other relevant government agencie.
