Sur­vey shows CPC mem­bers get higher in­come

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

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.
