This dataset is produced in collaboration with the University of Washington as part of the China in Time and Space (CITAS) project, University of California-Davis China in Time and Space (CITAS) project, and the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN). (Suggested Usage: To provide information on China's population and agricultural economy from the 1990 census, and geocoded 1990 China county boundary GIS data at 1:1M.)
