CNKI (中国统计年鉴) offers a wide variety of economic, social and environmental statistical information. Users can find information through a data search (with a standard, an index value, and an index definition mode), a data analysis tool (enabling comparison by districts, indexes, years), and yearbook navigation. The database includes all aspects and fields: national accounting, fixed assets investment, population and human resources, people’s living conditions and price indices, enterprises and institutions, finance, natural resources, energy and environment, political and public administration, peasants and agriculture and rural areas, industry, construction, transportation and telecommunication, domestic trade and foreign trade, touring, catering, education and technology, culture and sports, and public health.

The Datasets page is led by NYUSH Center for Data Science and Analytics, and created in collaboration with NYUSH Library. It aims to serve as a starting point for students and scholars to search for data related with China. The data have a focus almost exclusively on China collected mainly by Chinese administrations and scholars. The datasets presented here should either have open access to the public, or require mininal registration (a single step of logging in), or at the most ask users to fill in an application form for permission. The data can be accessed as either downloadable sets, online analysis tools, or aggregate statistics usually in tables.
The Database of Chinese Local Records (Zhongguo fangzhi ku, 中國基本古籍庫) contains local gazetteers, comprising not only gazetteers of jurisdictions, but also gazetteers of temples, mountains etc. The presently completed portion (two parts of a planned five) reproduces 4000 titles dating as far back as the Song Dynasty. The database includes searchable full text, along with page-image reproductions, including original maps and tables.
