It's an interesting quiz but it's not clear what criteria the source is using.

Agreed. I can guarantee that Canada has more than just one Chinatown (even my obscure hometown of Lethbridge technically has one).

Yeah. I don't know how South Korea isn't included, for example, since there is a pretty big Chinatown in Incheon.

This is the primary source and it is more about how it is defined by the locals, government, and also takes into account size.

This doesn't really seem to be a great source for making a list, since even this site notes that it is a work in progress and they are adding more to it regularly. I'm sure I'm missing tons, but I know at least that there are large Chinatowns in Philadelphia and Boston (bringing the U.S. total up to more than 5--there are more than 5 within New York City alone). Mexico City has a large one (and the oldest in the Americas, I believe), and Lima, Peru also has a large Chinatown.

Also, Japan is on here twice for some reason.

I also crossed it with Wikipedia just recently. I may add a 3rd source later but so far this is all the ones of significant status I could find.

This is more about Diaspora, I would have to include numbers in the hundreds of thousands if that were the case including China XD

Not sure how Australia has just one, the capital city of every state basically has one. Wikipedia lists many Chinatowns in Australia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinatowns_in_Australia
