ASIA

statistics

Here you can find some statistical data concerning the general situation of each country of this continent.
In addition to comprehensive information on the demographical development of each whole country, these data are also given for their administrative divisions and for their important cities.

Note: The Eastern part of Russia, which lies of course in Asia, will be treated as belonging to the continent of Europe.
Turkey and Cyprus will be considered as countries in Asia, thus not lying in Europe.
The West Bank and Gaza Strip are combined as a provisional state called Palestine.
Files of smaller island groups in the South China Sea that are regarded to belong to China (e.g. Paracel and Spratly Islands) are not separately made. These are areas in dispute; some short comments on these islands are found here below.
