The quantity and quality of a certain time and space are the basic elements of historical development, and the study of Shanghai can not but study the "people" of Shanghai. Shanghai is an immigrant city, in the long history of the development process, with its unique conditions, to attract the parties, from a sea town into the world metropolis. Studying the history of immigrants in Shanghai, the Song and Yuan Dynasties is an extremely important period. [30] 

Song and Yuan Dynasties

It is difficult to correctly understand the total population of Shanghai in the Song and Yuan Dynasties. Can only be based on existing historical data, through stripping analysis, for a rough estimate.

Today's Shanghai area, in the Song and Yuan Dynasties can be divided into Songjiang (including the later Shanghai County), Jiading, Chongming three blocks. Shi Zhizhong, Songjiang statistics are more complete; Jiading County after the data is also full; Chongming only the middle of the Yuan Dynasty after the statistics. However, the middle of the Yuan Dynasty before the Chongming population, Jiading County, the number of accounts before the county can be calculated according to Kunshan County. Chunyu "Yufeng Chi" and Jiajing "Kunshan County" recorded in Kunshan County, the number of accounts, the Northern Song Dynasty Daxiang Xiangli years for the 16348, the Southern Song Dynasty Qingyuan year for the 38942; when Kunshan sub-14 townships, Jiading for its east 5 Township, can be folded Jiading area in the large and medium Xiangxiang between about 5838, Qingyuan between about 13908 households. The average conversion, according to the situation at the beginning of the Northern Song Dynasty may be high, taking into account the lack of Chongming, the difference will not be too much, accordingly, the Shanghai area in the Song and Yuan Dynasties households as the unit population, the early Northern Song Dynasty about 60799, The middle of about 272520 households, Ming Hongwu 24 years about 350329 [30] 

The unit is because the number of records is not credible, the ancient Chinese population statistics to accommodate the number of mouth for the object, can not history as the total number of mouth. Such as Shaoxi "cloud blog" is only recorded in the "home", the customer on the leak; that is, according to their recorded in the early Northern Song Dynasty 103143, households are only 1.88 people, obviously too low; Yuanfeng households are only 2.17 people, the Yuan Dynasty households are more than 4 to 5 people, Hongwu 24 years Chongming households are the highest 6.06 people. In the early years of the Southern Song Dynasty, Huating salt supervised the yellow in the "on strike Huating company-like" in the "people to the family of ten dollars", reflecting the industry salt booth households are 10; according to " Fuchu epitaph ", the tomb of Huang Junju this Takahashi, its home" V regardless of "," will be often on the cafeteria mouth, "is the mouth of the family. Household data vary widely, need to carefully study and confirm.

Ting family by the official control, freedom than farmers, less households, the average number may be larger; Huang Mu class like the family will not be too much, but these large officials and their family slaves, , Will be set for the Song and Yuan households are 8, is never too high. At the end of the Song Dynasty Xie Fang in the "Xie Liu pure father Huimu" poem, "kapok received thousands of strains, eight do not worry poor" sentence, although it is false, but reflects the actual, very reference. Accordingly, the total population of the Shanghai area in the Northern Song Dynasty between the large and medium Xiangxiang about 486,000, the Yuan Dynasty to 27 yuan about 218 million, Ming Hongwu 24 years about 280.2 million.

From the Northern Song Dynasty to the early Ming Dynasty less than 400 years, the Shanghai population growth of nearly 5 times, much higher than the national growth rate over the same period. According to Liang Fangzhong's "Chinese history account, field, field statistics", the number of households in the north of the North Song Bao 9 years for the 3090504 households, Ming Hongwu 24 years for the 10684435 households, 400 years, 2.45 times, only the growth rate in Shanghai 51.47%. Obviously, the immigration of a large number of immigrants, the rapid growth of the population in Shanghai during the period the main reason. [30]
