The results of the annual "CCTV 2010 Economic Life Survey," which was conducted by the Financial Channel of CCTV, are going to be released on Jan. 12. The organizer of the survey revealed that 44.7 percent of Chinese people feel happy and 11.1 percent feel not happy.

According to CCTV, the current national survey covered all 31 administrative regions, and interviewees come from 104 cities and 300 counties, including all periods of ages, different education levels and various income situations. The distribution rate of the questionnaire survey is proportionate to each region's population.

Among the 86,000 people who returned their questionnaires, those whose family annual income is less than 20,000 RMB accounted for 40.4 percent. Those whose family annual income is between 20,000 and 50,000 RMB accounted for 44.6 percent. Those who fell between 50,000 to 100,000 RMB accounted for 12.4 percent, and those who made more than 100,000 RMB accounted for 2.6 percent.

The fact that 85 percent of the respondents had an annual income of less than 50,000 indicates that the survey is focused on the attitudes of average people. In addition, urban interviewees accounted for 77.7 percent of respondents in the current survey and rural interviewees, 22.3 percent.
