Methodology:

1. Combine all the native Chinese languages speakers from Ethnologue: https://www.ethnologue.com

2. If there is no data from the Ethnologue, we would consider this Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinophone#Statistics

3. If there is no data from both Ethnologue and the Wikipedia page above, we would use the population of ethnics Chinese as an estimation from this Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overseas_Chinese#Language
