Survey shows CPC members get higher income
The income level of Communist Party of China (CPC) members is much higher than non-Party people, according to a survey.
A total of 67.7 percent of those who reported a relatively high income were CPC members, the survey by the Data Research Center for Social Sciences at Fudan University showed.
The survey on the lives of the post-1980s generation included questions about family, marriage, jobs and fertility. It collected data in 80 communities in Shanghai — involving 3,311 families — and 53.78 percent of respondents were married and 57 percent were men.
Only five percent of respondents with a higher education and a steady job said they would consider a “naked marriage’’— a recently coined term referring to couples who get married even though they do not own a house, car or any other property of relatively high value.
