The ratio of days with good air quality in Chinese cities in 2010 averaged 70.85 percent, up 4.15 percent from 2009, according to an evaluation report on the comprehensive improvement of China’s urban environment in 2010 recently released by the Ministry of Environmental Protection.

According to a random telephone survey of China's urban residents conducted by the National Bureau of Statistics, nearly 63 percent of respondents said that they were satisfied with the country's efforts to improve the quality of the urban environment. Of all the problems, air quality and noise have been their top concerns.
