The region encompasses one-third of China's administrative regions-Shaanxi, Gansu, Qinghai, Sichuan, Yunnan and Guizhou provinces, Chongqing Municipality, and the Ningxia Hui, Xingjiang Uygur, Guangxy Zhuang, Inner Mongolia and Tibet autonomous regions. Covering 5.4 million square km. West China equals 56 percent of the nation's total land area, and supports a population of 280 million, or 23 percent of the national total.
