Sur­vey finds 77 per­cent of Chi­nese fam­i­lies are happy

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

When it comes to be­ing happy in China, women have a slight edge, but men are not far be­hind, ac­cord­ing to a govern­ment-backed sur­vey. And the hap­pi­ness quo­tient goes up with age, and among peo­ple who are still in their first mar­riage.

Un­der­taken last year by the China Pop­u­la­tion Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Cen­ter, a sub­sidiary of the Na­tional Health and Fam­ily Plan­ning Com­mis­sion and Chi­nese Academy of So­cial Sciences, the sur­vey sam­pled nearly 6,000 peo­ple from seven prov­inces and mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties, in­clud­ing Bei­jing.

Nearly 77 per­cent of re­spon­dents said they had a happy fam­ily, with more than 22 per­cent of those say­ing they felt very happy with their fam­i­lies, a slight in­crease over 2014.
