Taipei is the political, economic, educational, and cultural centre of Taiwan, and one of the major hubs of the Chinese-speaking world. The city proper is home to an estimated population of 2.7 million people. Like the rest of Taiwan, Taipei is composed of four major ethnic groups: Hoklos, Mainlanders, Hakkas, and Taiwanese aborigines. Although Hoklos and Mainlanders form the majority of the population of the city, in recent decades many Hakkas have moved into the city.
