Some interesting facts emerge from this analysis, and not just the huge population of China as a whole (1.3 billion people). For example, the province level municipality of Shanghai has more people than Romania (23.0 million vs. 22.0 million) and more people live in Beijing (19.6 million) than New York state (19.4 million). Germany’s population of 81.8 million is not that different from Sichuan province at 80.4 million. Shanxi province and California both have a population of around 37.3 million (as does Poland!).

This analysis is rather rudimentary but that’s not the point here. Instead, we just want to provide more of an insight into the city and the country which will host one of our 2012 conferences.
