Part of the New Perspectives on Chinese Politics and Society book series (NPCPS)


This chapter concludes the book. In this chapter, other than the concluding remarks, I will compare data from our survey of Chinese urban population with those of the Asian Barometer Survey that was conducted across China (except for Xinjiang and Tibet) in 2015. Compared with Chinese urbanites, support for the current political system is even higher than in the general Chinese population. In addition, our Chinese urban residents are also much more interested in political affairs than the general population in China. Like majority of urbanites in our survey of large Chinese cities, most Chinese people favor the direct election of Chinese leaders. Finally, the general Chinese population shows a higher level of political trust of the Chinese government than our urban dwellers.
