Chinese report counting 1,008,175,288 heads

China announced the preliminary results of the world's biggest census, saying there are 1,008,175,288 people in the People's Republic.

The New China News Agency, however, highlighted another figure - 1,031,882, 511 - including the populations of Taiwan, the British Colony of Hong Kong, and the Portuguese-ruled territory of Macao on the south China coast. China is working for eventual reunification with the two foreign-ruled territories and Taiwan.
