This paper set up a set of index system and model methods for the assessment of the coordination between population and resources, environment and social-economic development, and it quantitatively evaluated this coordination at the provincial scale in 2000 and 2010 respectively. Based on the impacts of the restriction of water and land resources, it is shown that the social-economic development has a further influence on population distribution. It is suggested that the basic ways to promote the coordinated development of population, resources and environment in different regions in China can be summarized as : implementing the strategy of population agglomeration and evacuation, guiding the orderly flow of population, optimizing the spatial distribution of population and drawing up the spatial planning of population development
