Number of newspapers per 100,000 of the population (red bars) and number of newspaper pages published per person (yellow bars), 2002   [sorted]

Source: China Statistical Yearbook, 2003, Table 21-13, p.790
Note: Number of newspaper pages per person = printed signatures.

This figure displays the ranking of Chinese provinces for two key indicators of public information: the number of newspapers per 100,000 of the population, and the number of newspaper pages printed per person in 2002. In relation to the (relatively small) number of people, Tibet and Xinjiang have a large number of newspapers - much more than, for instance, the provinces of Guangdong or Sichuan. However, the newspapers in Tibet and Xinjiang are printed in rather limited editions. If we take into account the numbers of copies printed and the numbers of pages per copy we get a completely different ranking: Now, Guangdong, Beijing and Shanghai are clearly leading, while Qinghai, Inner Mongolia and Tibet have the smallest numbers of published newspaper pages per person.
