2016 Statistical Yearbook of Taichung City
From 1945 to 2010, the administrative regions were divided into Taichung County and Taichung City. Since December 25th, 2010, the two regions have been merged and upgraded as one municipality of Taichung City (which has its status as a province), with 29 districts under its jurisdiction and a total area of 2,215 square kilometers. Among these districts, Heping District was then restructured into a mountainous aboriginal district, with a local government autonomous body with the status of a public legal person, on December 25, 2014. The district mayor and the district representatives of Heping are elected directly by the district residents.
The Budget, Accounting, and Statistics Office of Taichung City Government collects statistical data from various aspects annually and compiles the Statistical Yearbook of Taichung City. The purpose is to provide data relative to the general situation of the city and its major accomplishments, so as to be of assistance to organizations concerned with executing public business.
The data listed in the Book after 2011 is of the municipality of Taichung City, whereas the data before 2010 is consolidated from data of the former Taichung County and Taichung City. Data that cannot be consolidated is presented separately. The figures are based on the latest annual data, but data of recent years are also listed, allowing us to make comparisons and better forecast future development trends.
The present issue contains 17 categories: Land, Population, Marital and Fertile Status, Labor Force, Education, Industry and Commerce, Agriculture, Finance and Monetary Affairs, Government Service, Public Works, Transportation, Social Affairs, Social Security, Public Safety, Public Health, Environmental Protection, and Family Living.
