Qingdao, Kunming, Sanya, Dalian, Weihai, Suzhou, Zhuhai, Xiamen and Shenzhen are the top ten livable Chinese cities, according to the Chinese livable cities research report released by the Chinese Academy of Science on June 14, 2016. The report is based on surveys conducted in forty Chinese cities.

The report shows that generally speaking, citizens of those forty cities are most satisfied with public service facilities, followed by natural environment, cultural environment, transportation convenience, environmental health and city safety. 

Although city safety got the lowest scores among the above mentioned six indexes, citizens give higher appraisal regarding city safety for first-tier cities such as Shenzhen, Beijing and Shanghai. 

Citizens from first-tier cities such as Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Beijing, as well as famous tourist cities such as Nanjing, Qingdao and Chengdu, generally give high appraisal to the public service facilities. 

Using a large number of questionnaire surveys and statistic analyses, the report reflects the true feelings of the citizens. The report has an interesting finding: people of different income levels, education backgrounds, residence status obviously have different appraisals regarding the livability of a given city. For example, the degree of satisfaction amongst the middle-income group is higher than that of the high-income group as well as low-income group. 

The report also shows that in terms of the happiness of citizens, the top five cities are Xiamen, Weihai, Ningbo, Jinan and Suzhou.
