In terms of population analysis, the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR) is set apart from the TIA's other regions because of the availability of reliable and correct data. Analyzing the data for the other regions proves to be difficult because such information is often either available only to administrative units or not separated from province-wide data. The TAR covers about 1.2 million square kilometers and is found in southwestern China. According to various recent studies, the area has experienced several historic changes particularly in terms of population. This chapter examines the fundamental structural characteristics of the TAR's population, then changes in the Han and the Tibetan populations are examined through analyzing the censuses from 1982, 1990, and 2000.

Keywords: TAR; historic changes; Han population; Tibetan population; structural characteristics
