New Pew Report On Chinese Attitudes Toward Country, Olympics, Growth, and Challendges

Wednesday, July 23, 2008 1:11

Pew Research group puts out some of the best opinion research. they are not the type of organization that interviews 30 people and extrapolates… they go for that last .0012 on the bell curve when analyzing their statistics.

This report has the makings of being one of those that will be required reading for everyone, and I say that after only reading the introduction and peaking at the first few pages.

For anyone watching China right now, there is a lot to stand back in awe of. there is a lot to stand back to see what happens.. and there are some things that we should all just stand back from.

This report has positioned itself to look at all of that from the perspective of Mr. and Ms. Zhou.

Interesting graphic #1 is above, but there is also THIS ONE that shows they were not afraid to ask the real questions either.

I am looking forward to finishing this 50 page report tonight once I have finished writing my other reports.

    You’ve got to really read both charts together to see the real picture behind the 80+% of people feeling good about the country and family life.

    I am just wrapping up the report, and you are right. What I find interesting is how the different cuts are showing different levels of happiness, and just how much it depends on income.

    The stats that I love is that only 1% of the people surveyed new about the product recall, and that 80% think China is viewed favorably by others – love how pew put that against another stat of how others viewed China.. and only 25% had a favorable view… hell of a gap.
