Figure 1 Water use for different sectors (1949-2000). (From Ke Li Dan, 2002.)

Province ranks the lowest (187 m3) whereas the Xinjiang Autonomous Region ranks the highest (2490 m3), more than 13 times higher than Shanxi. This is due to differences in climate and physiographic conditions and to traditional ways of water use. The index remained stable for different administrative regions. The per capita water use varies with different regions, but the figures of per capita water use for each of the different regions remains stable for a period of time.
