Chinese Attitudes on Environmental Pollution Reported

A recent Pew Research Center Global Attitudes Project report on the survey, Environmental Concerns on the Rise in China, found that fear of water and air pollution is growing among the Chinese. In 2012, 36% of Chinese said that air pollution was a "very big problem" and in 2013 that number grew to 47% of the respondents. Regarding water pollution in 2012, 33% of respondents said that it was a "very big problem" while in 2013, 40% said the same. This represents a one-year increase of 23% and 18% respectively in Chinese attitudes about air and water pollution.

This report is based on the 2013 Spring Pew Global Attitudes Survey administered in face-to-face interviews of 3,226 Chinese adults from March 4 to April 2, 2013. The sample was taken from 12 cities, 12 towns, and 12 villages in east, west and central China.
