Urban Chinese are overwhelmingly happy with their country’s economic and political progress, and register higher levels of "national contentment" than citizens of other nations, according to public-opinon survey by the Pew Research Center, the Wall Street Journal reported. Of the 3,212 Chinese surveyed, 82% considered the country’s economic situation "good," compared to 69% of Austrialians, who placed second. Only 20% of urban Americans said the same for their country, placing the country 20th out of the 24 countries surveyed. Eighty-six percent of Chinese surveyed – who were mainly residents of relatively prosperous cities – also said they were satisfied with the way things are going in their country, up from 72% in 2005.
