The sixth census data shows that Shandong is a home to 0.72 million people belonging to 55 ethnic majorities, 0.75 percent of the provincial total population, among which, 0.54 million are Hui people, accounting for 45 percent of the provincial ethnic minority population.

Ma Kai, director of Shandong Provincial Ethnic Affairs Commission, said that Shandong has seven municipalities with populations of ethnic minority over 50,000, 28 counties (cities, district) with ethnic populations of more than 10,000, four ethnic minority townships, 125 key townships on ethnic affairs with populations over 1,000 and 365 ethnic villages.

According to the relevant statistics released by Shandong provincial department, Shandong owns 140 primary schools for nationalities, 23 ethnic middle schools and 2 ethnic secondary trade schools. 29 Schools offers classes for minority nationalities, among which one is junior high school, 20 are senior high schools and 8 are secondary vocational schools.

The ever-quickening opening-up and urbanization contribute to the growing size of the population migration of minority nationality, with more than one million people at the peak.
