China and India

The two powerhouses of Asian chess are China and India. How do they compare to each other? I returned to my database derived from the January 2013 FIDE rating list, last seen in The Youngest and the Oldest, to do some calculations.

Of the 151322 players on the worldwide list, the following chart shows for both countries the number of registered players ('Ct'), the total number of titled players ('Tot'), and counts for the main titles. The 'W' titles are for women.

More information about the two countries can be found in the FIDE Directory for the Asian continent.
