Chongqing is the largest and most populous of the People's Republic of China's
four provincial-level municipalities, and the only one in the less densely populated
western region of China.
Formerly (until 14 March 1997) a sub-provincial city within Sichuan Province,
the municipality of Chongqing has a registered population of 31,442,300 (2005).
The boundaries of Chongqing municipality reach much further into the city's hinterland
than the boundaries of the other three provincial level municipalities (Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin),
and much of the municipality, which spans over 20 million acres (80,000 sq. km.) is rural.
The population of the urban area of Chongqing proper was 4.1 million in 2005 although this
figure is disputed owing to difficulties as to where the urban area of Chongqing begins and ends.
The municipal abbreviation, (Yú), was approved by the State Council on 18 April 1997.
Chongqing was also a municipality of the old Republic of China.
Its abbreviated name is derived from the old name of a part of the Jialing River that runs
through Chongqing and feeds the Yangtze River.
