According to a recent survey by insurance company Manulife-Sinochem it appears that despite good health, better education and higher incomes, the middle class is discovering that economic pressures and little time to spend with family members are major sources of annoyance.
Yan Ye, a professor with the North China Institute of Science and Technology, said, "The middle class is a ‘sandwiched class’, being worse off than some and better off than many. The government should expand coverage of social security, promote low-income housing projects and adjust income distribution to help them."
English People’s Online said around 200 million to 300 million people belong to the middle class in China, accounting for 23% to 25% of the total population and increasing by 1% every year.
