中华人民共和国行政区划代码: Codes for the administrative divisions of the People’s Republic of China¶
The GB/T 2260 standard defines six-digit numerical codes for the administrative divisions of China, at the county level and above. For instance, the Haidian district of Beijing has the code 110108.
The most recent version of the official standard, designated “GB/T 2260-2007”, was published in 2008. However, codes are routinely revised, and the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) publishes an updated list online annually.
gb2260 exposes an up-to-date database of the GB/T 2260 codes, with extra information including English names, Pinyin transcriptions, administrative levels, etc., as well as code for updating the database with newly-released changes.
