I have been researching frantically for the China 2010 dataset for county boundaries. I went through quite a few sources:

China Data Center - Can't afford it

GADM.org - Not verfiable for date

This is mostly 2000 Census: https://research.cip.cgiar.org/gis/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=11&min=20&orderby=titleA&show=10

Can anybody help me get the 2010 county boundaries shapefile?

This question has answers on the GIS site - see here (although not specific to the 2010 border)

In particular, for the OSM answer, I've recently written two answers which may be relevant: osm 1, osm 2

Unfortunately, the oldest datasets seem to be from 2014-01-01 (source)
