The economic census data of China provides rich and comprehensive information for economic sectors of China; however, most of those data are usually not accessible to scholars since those data are not available in official publications. In a collaboration with the All China Marketing Research Co. and the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the UM China Data Center has released a series of economic census data products and services, including 2001 business Census data, and 2004 and 2008 economic Census data. This workshop will give an introduction to some background of the economic census data of China, discuss the primary differences between the US economic census data and China economic census data, describe the methodology for building GIS-based census data products and the technology for integrating those economic census data from different years in a web based spatial system for easy access and analysis. It will also discuss some applications of those economic census data, possible limitations of those census data products, and the potential of future applications.
