Editor’s note: This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of New China.

On Dec 2, 1986, China’s first housing census was released. The survey found that there were 4.7 billion square meters of floor space in urban areas. The floor space per capita was 6.36 square meters in cities at that time.

An item from April 13, 1998, in China Daily reported that the central government decided to end the government-allocated housing system and cultivate residential housing as a new growth area.

This Day, That Year
