This list ranks urban agglomerations in China by population. The list is taken from the United Nations world urbanisation data from 2011.

Official Chinese city boundaries can cover a large physical area and thus do not necessarily represent the true 'built-up area' of the city.[1]

The table includes cities with a population of 3 million or greater.
