Chinese people dissatisfied with food safety, environment: survey


11:01, December 07, 2012

BEIJING, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- Chinese people are generally satisfied with the government's public services, but they are becoming increasingly concerned about the quality of what they eat and the environment in which they live, a scholar said Thursday.

A survey measuring how people feel about basic public services in China found that services concerning environmental protection and food safety scored below three points on a five-point scale, highlighting that security incidents and food safety scandals have reduced people's confidence in recent years.

The results of the survey conducted among 8,070 people were released by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) in a report, and they sum up people's degrees of satisfaction with infrastructure, public security, social security, medical and health services, education and environmental protection.

Although the rest of the categories received passing scores, as China has expanded investment in education and infrastructure in the country's western regions and rural areas, there are still some problems of imbalance, said CASS research fellow Wu Ying, one of the compilers of the report.

The satisfaction scores were calculated according to five degrees, ranging from 1 to 5 points, with 1 being "extremely dissatisfied" and 5 being "very satisfied."
