Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Heilongjiang's officially reported area of 473,000 square kilometres (183,000 sq mi)[7] explicitly includes parts of Inner Mongolia's Oroqen Autonomous Banner administered as Songling District and Jiagedaqi District under Heilongjiang's Daxing'anling Prefecture. The combined area of these two districts is 18,200 square kilometres (7,000 sq mi),[8] which has been subtracted from Heilongjiang's reported area to arrive at the figure of 454,800 square kilometres (175,600 sq mi) reported in the table and corroborated by ref. 6.
  2. ^ Figure is the sum of the areas of the listed administrative divisions, rounded to the nearest hundred square kilometres. The National Bureau of Statistics of China gives China's total land area as 9.6 million square kilometres.[36]
  3. ^ Figure is the sum of the areas of the listed administrative divisions, rounded to the nearest hundred square miles.
