Scientific and technical staff of state-owned enterprises, 1990-2006

Source: National Bureau of Statistics of China (2006): China Statistical Yearbook, 2006. Beijing (China Statistics Press), Table 21-49

Since 1990, China has expanded its teaching staff significantly - from 8.2 million to 12.6 million in 2006. The number of engineers in state-owned enterprises, on the other hand, peaked in 1996, but declined afterwards. In 2006, the number of engineers was roughty the same as in 1990. Obviously, private enterprises are absorbing more of the engineering staff in recent years. Scientific and technical staff in state-owned health care institutions increased only slightly from 2.7 million in 1990 to 3.6 million in 2006.
