Anhui is a landlocked province located in the central PRC with a land area of 139,400 km2. It has a population of 65 million, of which 63% are classified as rural (among the highest in the country), and is substantially higher than the eastern provinces (an average 45% rural population). The population density of 470 persons per km2 is significantly higher than the national average of 138, and higher than the average for the Central Region (355). Anhui is one of the least developed provinces, ranked 28th among all provinces in terms of GDP per capita, only ahead of Gansu, Guizhou, and Yunnan. The GDP per capita was about 63% of the national average in 2006. Poverty and urban-rural disparity are major issues. Of the province's 61 counties, 26 are officially designated poverty counties. In 2006, the average annual disposable income was CNY9,771 for an urban resident, but only CNY2,969 for a rural inhabitant.
