Eighty-one percent of China's population is satisfied with the way things are going in their country, an increase of nine percentage points from last year, a new poll about global attitudes and views released on Tuesday showed.

The annual survey, conducted by the Pew Research Center in 15 countries in April and May this year, found most samples of citizens from different countries surveyed were dissatisfied with their national conditions.

In the United States, for example, only 29 percent of those surveyed said they were satisfied with the way things were going in their country, down from 39 percent last year and 50 percent in 2003.

In Britain, the level of national satisfaction fell from last year's 44 percent to just 35 percent this year, while in France, only 20 percent said they were satisfied with their national conditions, down from 28 percent in 2005.

Public discontent was even higher in Nigeria, where only 7 percent of Nigerians had a positive view of the state of their nation.

In the 15 countries where the survey was conducted, apart from China, the only countries to show a majority expressing satisfaction with their national conditions were in Egypt (55 percent), Jordan (53 percent) and Spain (50 percent). besides China.

The poll of some 17,000 people in 15 countries, including China, Egypt, France, Germany, Britain, India, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Spain, Turkey and the United States, had a margin of error ranging from two to six percentage points.
