    First-level subdivisions of China are provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities, as shown. There are about 350 second-level divisions, including municipalities under direct provincial control, t'i-ch' (prefectures, or areas), chuan-ch' (special districts), tzu-chih-chou (autonomous districts), hsing-cheng-ch' (administrative districts), and (in Nei Mongol only) meng (leagues). There are about 2,800 third-level divisions: hsien (counties), municipalities, tzu-chih-hsien (autonomous counties), etc. The fourth-level divisions were formerly hsiang (villages) and chen (towns). In 1958, they were all replaced by communes.

    The Chinese National Bureau of Standards created a hierarchical set of codes for the first-, second-, and third-level administrative subdivisions. In a six-digit code, the first two digits indicate a province, the next two a prefecture or municipality on the prefecture level, and the last two a county or municipality on the county level. The standard is designated GB2260, where GB stands for Guobiao, and the codes are called Guobiao codes. (They should not be confused with the Guobiao codes for Chinese characters, which are defined by standard GB12345.) The Guobiao two-digit province codes are listed in the main table above. In addition, China has assigned codes to Hong Kong (81), Macau (82), and Taiwan is (71). ISO codes for Hong Kong and Macau begin with 9 instead of 8; remember that those SARs also have country codes of their own.
