This paper presents an analysis of fire statistical data for China between 1998 and 2002. Fire situation and fire characteristic have been discussed with the method of average analysis, dynamic analysis and factor analysis. Analysis reveals that the governmentâ€™s efforts to fire protection have succeeded to some extent. In addition, fire occurring likelihood (fire frequency) and fatalities in fires have been also analyzed. Based on previous analysis, fire frequency in different building categories and fire societal risk criterion has been presented.
