Are you satisfied with your family, health, income and career? The latest survey conducted by China Central Television identifies the nine happiest Chinese cities in 2016.

The survey, named China Economic Life Survey, used both primary research involving over 100,000 families in 104 cities and 300 counties in the country, as well as analysis of Big Data online. It covers family relations, marriage and relationships, health, income, education, career prospects and other factors.

Three factors were chosen by Chinese people as the most important in relation to the happiness index, namely, health (54.19 percent), family relations (47.79 percent) and income (43.81 percent).

If you are living in the following cities, congratulations! You may be one of the luckiest persons.

Lhasa, Tibet Autonomous Region

Chengdu, Sichuan Province

Changchun, Jilin Province

Yinchuan, Ningxia Province


Hefei, Anhui Province

. It covers family relations, marriage and relationships, health, income, education, career prospects and other factors.

I have not looked up this research, so don't know what those "other factors" included are.

But considering just the shortlisted factors in OP's post, interesting is how none of those directly relate to the location - such factors could be satisfaction to local weather, pollution, environment in general, traffic, local government officials and their policies, etc.

If indeed such factors relevant to each locality were left out from the study, then the result could to some degree show where people are happiest regardless of their surroundings.

Could be interesting to further study what in their life makes them happy -  or how the happines changes when you add external factors that individual citizens or families cannot directly affect or change - but perhaps that would be politically too sensitive...
