Chinese urban citizens focus more on life quality, survey finds
People living in tier-1 and 2 cities are paying more attention to health and living a healthier and more dignified life, according to a blue book released by Sino-US United MetLife Insurance Co Ltd on Saturday.
The survey was carried out across 12 Chinese cities among urban population born from 1970s-90s.
The post-70s generation are more willing to plan a comprehensive health solution to increase their health span, the blue book said.
In comparison, only three quarters of people born in the 1980s are willing to prolong their health span, the surgery said.
The post-90s generation has the strongest health consciousness among those surveyed: Over 40 percent of them are willing to spend as much as one-third of their total income on health, according to the survey.
Nowadays people give priority to improving the quality of life, said professor Zhong Wenzhao, deputy director of China Society of Clinical Oncology and deputy director of Lung Cancer Research Institute in Guangdong Province.
