China is the 4th largest country in the world in terms of land area (9,596,960 km2), after the United States (9,826,675 km2), Canada (9, 984, 670 km2) and the sprawling Russia (17,098,242 km2).
The top 3 largest provinces of China, Xinjiang (新疆), Tibet (西藏) and Inner Mongolia (内蒙古), occupy a combined 42% of the total land area, but barely contribute a combined 6% population to China's 1.3+ million population, implying these are sparsely populated regions that may not yet be fully developed.
The smallest "provinces" are not really provinces; they are, in fact, special municipalities and administrative regions and include Beijing (北京 16,800 km2), Tianjin (天津 11,305 km2), Shanghai (上海市 6,341 km2), Hong King (香港 1,104 km2) and Macau (澳门 km2)

This data references the 2019 study by Value Champion (refer to URL below) to determine the best cities for millenials to live and work.
According to Value Champion, many young people are willing to move abroad in order to pursue personal and career opportunities. In fact, the World Economic Forum found that 4 out of 5 millennials would be willing to relocate internationally for work.
Thus, this study will provide useful reference points for European startups looking to recruit millenials into their workforce.
