If you’re searching around for some good China population density maps, you’ve landed in the right place. I’ve curated a collection of the best maps I can find that give a visual representation of this massive China population.
Feel free to download these maps (right-click to save a larger version) and if this was helpful, please link back to China-Mike so others can find this easier as well!
Whereas the above population density map of China shows a fluid representation of the density within the country, below you’ll find a map that breaks population density down by region/province in China.
Of course, population density in China is hard to visualize in the context of the rest of the world. That’s why I love this next map: it’s the population of each province in China depicted as a country with an equivalent total population!
When it comes to population numbers, China and India beat out any other part or the world. So in the next China population density map, you can see how the populations of both countries compare and where their people tend to congregate.
Finally, this next population density maps puts it all into perspective. How does China’s population density look within the context of the entire globe?
China Population Density Maps
As you can see, a population density map of China tells an interesting story, not just from a micro level (within the country) but also on a more macro level (in contrast to the rest of the world.
China’s population has boomed over the past century, but what makes it so interesting is how the people of China have congregated in major cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and many others. Even “small” cities in China have millions of inhabitants!
