China on track to have one camera for every two people by 2020, report finds. — SCMP

Chinese cities are the most monitored in the world and – if surveillance cameras are installed at planned rates – can be expected to have one public camera for every two people by 2020, according to a British pro-consumer website.

In a ranking based on the number of CCTV cameras per 1,000 people, China has eight of the top 10 most surveilled cities in the world. The only two non-Chinese cities in the top 10 were London in sixth place and Atlanta in the US at No 10.
