Multi-national population of China

Population of China: Chinese girls photoshoot with childrenThe People’s Republic of China is a multi-national state. According to official data, the PRC’s territory is inhabited by 56 nationalities, which considerably differ from each other. The title nationality is the Hans, accounting for 55% of the whole Chinese population; the other ethnic groups are considered “national minorities”.

Such colorful population pattern resulted from Chinese numerous invasions at the turn of the XVIII-XIX centuries, when the army of the Qing Empire annexed Inner Mongolia and Eastern Turkestan, which further was developed into Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, to its territories. And upon termination of World War II, China came into possession of Manchuria again. Thus, in spite of the fact, that the national minorities account for a small percent from Chinese total population, they occupy vast territories of the country.
