In this paper, alltogether 167 reliable heat flow data were compiled from published and in-press references. All the data are divided into three groups according to their quality. The geographic distribution of the data is nueven, most data are concentrated in North and East China with a few meansurements in Panxi region, SW China and S Tibet. Statistic analysis of these data showed that the heat flow values in China continental area vary from 25 to 110 mW/m2 if 10 abnormally high values in the lakes of S. Tibet were rejected. The mean value appears to be 63 mW/m2 and a normal distribution of the compiled heat flow data is obvious.
