In recent years, more and more Chinese have been calling for establishing and improving the system for disclosing the property of public officials.

Last week, the Social Investigation Center under China Youth Daily carried out an online survey covering 2,908 interviewees, and the result showed that 92.4 percent of them believe that it is necessary to build a nationwide assets disclosure system for public officials in China. Of the interviewees, 11.9 percent were public servants.

In the investigation, 92.4 percent of the interviewees believe that it is necessary to build a nationwide disclosure system in China. Of the interviewees, 64.9 percent believe "it is very necessary." It is noticeable that 71.4 percent of public servant interviewees believe that "it is very necessary" to build the system nationwide, much higher than that of other interviewees (64.1 percent).

Regarding the contents of the disclosure, most respondents selected "changes to individual and family properties" (73.4 percent) as the most important category. The item ranked second was the "family property" (65.0 percent), the third was the "individual property" (64.6 percent), and the next was "close relatives' properties" (41.2 percent).

When asked to whom the officials should disclose their assets, 70.5 percent of the interviewees chose the "public," 63.9 percent chose "discipline inspection and organization departments," 26.7 percent chose the "Communist Party," and 22 percent chose "superior leaders."
