The vast majority of people living in Beijing are Han Chinese (also the world's largest ethnic group), who make up about 96% of the city's population (and 92% of the population of China).
There are a number of other Chinese minority groups who also reside in Beijing. In addition, Beijing is host to a growing international community, made up of people from all over the world. Besides the Han majority, other Chinese minority groups (all recognized as Chinese nationals) currently living in Beijing are Manchu (1.8%), Hui (1.7%), Mongol (0.3%) and Korean (0.2%).
There are also smaller populations (all <10,000) of the Tujia, Zhuang, Miao, Uyghur and Tibetan Chinese minority groups. As this website itself proves, a growing number of foreigners can be found living in China's capital. In 2006 Beijing's foreign population was estimated at 50,000 and since then has consistently expanded. Current estimates put the number as high as 200,000. China's international hubs - especially Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong - are attracting more and more foreign enterprises and employees. A significant number of Beijing's expat community is middle to upper class.
South Koreans make up a sizeable portion of the international community in Beijing. Their population is estimated at 100,000. The majority of Korean expats live in the Wangjing and Wudaokou areas, a great number of whom came for better work opportunities or to attend one of Beijing's many universities.
