Survey: Majority satisfied with life

THE MAJORITY of Chinese people were satisfied with their lives in 2002, according to a survey. .  

The poll by Horizon & Horizonkey was conducted among 3,276 people in 10 major cities across the nation.  

It indicated that 60.6% of respondents were “pretty satisfied” with their lives, with 5.9% saying that they were “very satisfied.”  

Only about one-third said they were not “satisfied” or “very unsatisfied” with their current conditions.  

Further analysis of the survey showed that the prime sources of satisfaction for Chinese people included the nation’s economic development, its international status, public security and the results of the on-going reform process.  

China’s economy has maintained its momentum for rapid development in this first year after the nation entered the World Trade Organisation.  

The National Bureau of Statistics predicted earlier this week that the Chinese economy could grow by 8% in 2002.  

Although the Chinese people are confident when it comes to their individual economic situation, living conditions and income prospect in the future, respondents showed less consumer confidence and job satisfaction. – China Daily
