China Data Insights is a new and more user-friendly version of the China Statistical Yearbooks Database (CSYD). The content is the same as CSYD and it is also possible to go to CSYD via the link to “Old Version” in the upper corner of the website. China Data Insights provides access to statistical data published officially by the mainland Chinese government. China Data Insights contains 1074 kinds of statistical yearbooks, 1383340 tables, and 10592774 indicators, covering 18 topics. The content can be browsed by topic or geographical region. There are also functions for data analysis and data mining. Search is possible by topic, data sets, tables, indicators, and titles.
