Vil­lagers sat­is­fied with their life: Sur­vey

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

Most el­derly peo­ple who live in vil­lages are sat­is­fied with their lives, even though they are far from their chil­dren, strug­gle to ob­tain health­care and ser­vices for the aged and are still work­ing on fam­ily farms or in other en­deav­ors, a sur­vey found.

The re­port re­leased by re­searchers at Shang­hai Uni­ver­sity of Fi­nance and Eco­nomics found that 81.3 per­cent of el­derly peo­ple were sat­is­fied with their cur­rent state of life and 86.5 per­cent were happy with their re­la­tion­ships with their chil­dren.

The re­port was based on a sur­vey in 2014 of 10,421 el­derly res­i­dents of 731 vil­lages across the coun­try
