China's economy was 2.1% bigger than earlier estimated, the government said, revising the GDP for 2018 to 91.93 trillion yuan based on results of a census. The National Bureau of Statistics said the revision reflects more complete measures of the services sector and assets. It raises the possibility China's communist leaders will attain their target of doubling the country's GDP between 2010 and 2020.
