Lie No.3: "Population growth rates in a Uygur region where Han constitute the majority were nearly 8 times higher than in the surrounding rural Uygur regions (in 2018)."

When mentioning the net population change rate for the Hans have increased to 7.42‰, Adrian Zenz used the word "estimate", which means it is an inaccurate assumption. Perhaps Adrian Zenz feels guilty about his lies, so he used vague terms to cover them up.

As is known, Xinjiang is a multi-ethnic region where many ethnic groups reside in addition to the Hans and the Uygurs. The Uygur population in Xinjiang from 2010 to 2018 did not decrease as Adrian Zenz said, but showed an upward trend.

According to statistics, from 2010 to 2018, the total population of Xinjiang at the end of the year rose from 21.8158 million to 24.8676 million, an increase of 3.0518 million or 13.99%. Specifically, the ethnic minority population rose from 12.9859 million to 15.8608 million, an increase of 2.8749 million, an increase of 22.14%; among them, the Uygur population rose from 10.1715 million to 12.7184 million, an increase of 2.5469 million, an increase of 25.04%.

During the same period, the Han population rose from 8.8299 million in 2010 to 9.0068 million in 2018, an increase of 0.1769 million or 2.0%.

In summary, the growth rate of the Uygur population in Xinjiang is not only higher than that of the entire Xinjiang population, it is also higher than the growth rate of the minority population in Xinjiang, and it is significantly higher than the growth rate of the Han population in Xinjiang.
