Referring to Populations

It is important to refer to this community as “Han Chinese South, China" when describing these samples in articles or presentations. Including the full name reinforces the point that the sample set does not represent all Han Chinese people, nor of all people in China, where there are 56 officially recognized ethnicities. The population should not be described merely as "Asian" or as "East Asian" as these terms encompass many communities.

The full population descriptor is Han Chinese South, China and the abbreviation is CHS.

Additional guidance about how to refer to the populations can be found at Guidelines for Referring to the Populations in Publications and Presentations.
