Chinese people show more satisfaction with weather services in 2011, according to a recent survey.

The survey participants give 85.7 points to weather services in 2011, an increase of 2.2 points from that of 2010 according to the results of a nationwide survey jointly conducted by the China Meteorological Administration and National Bureau of Statistics.

The survey also shows that people expect to learn more general knowledge about meteorological disaster prevention and mitigation.

Almost 50,000 participants, including two-thirds urban residents, from China's 31 provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities, took part in the survey.

Nearly 53 percent of the respondents have general knowledge of meteorological disaster prevention and mitigation while the goal is to make 80 percent people have the knowledge.

The public want to acquire knowledge about meteorological disaster prevention and mitigation by watching documentaries and videos via television, mobile phone, the Internet, and other channels.
