This smaller map removes the countries where Min Chinese is dominant. This map therefore only shows 10.1% of all speakers of Min Chinese. The territories omitted are China and Taiwan.

Min Chinese is spoken by roughly 67 million speakers, in at least 42 territories. It is mostly spoken in the south-eastern province of Fujian, in Hainan Island, and in Taiwan.

Min speakers in Taiwan and Singapore are descendants of emigrants from the Fujian province.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Min Chinese as a first language that live in that territory.
