First of all, let’s speak about poverty in statistics. According to a statistic showing the population percentage under the poverty line, China seems to be in a better position than the US:

Something interesting regarding USA/China.

The study by HSBC found that 70 per cent of surveyed “millennials”, or those between the ages of 19 and 36, on the mainland owned their own home.

By comparison, the poll of some 9,000 people across nine countries found that only 35 per cent of the same age group own homes in the United States, with the figure 31 per cent in Britain.
For young people in China who do not yet own a home, 91 per cent reported intentions to buy property in the next five years.

A new survey suggests that China has one of the highest global rates of home ownership for young people.

The study by HSBC found that 70 per cent of surveyed “millennials”, or those between the ages of 19 and 36, on the mainland owned their own home.

Statistical data is a good reference for analysis. Most important is not to treat it completely as the truth. Quality of life does not and cannot be measured by statistical data alone.
