Beijing, Dec 24 (IANS) Seventy percent of Chinese in an online survey said they were happy in 2011. The survey involved more than 10,000 people across China.

Physical and mental health, relationship with parents, neighbours, and family economic conditions were listed as the main factors for happiness. Well-educated married women in their late 20s were deemed the happiest group.

Zhang Hanxiang, a population expert in Beijing, said one major change in society is that more respondents judge their happiness based on relationships and not money, the China Daily reported Saturday.

The survey also showed that rural families are happier than their urban peers. They listed marriage, health, children and owning a home as the most important factors for their happiness.
