Fewer city residents say they're happy

FEWER people in Shanghai feel happy about their life than their peers in less developed cities, plagued by the cost of living, housing prices and medical bills, according to the latest survey cited by today's Guangzhou Daily.

Chongqing Municipality and cities in Jiangsu, Sichuan and Fujian provinces score the happiest in the survey, while Shenzhen, Beijing and Shanghai and cities in Zhejiang Province were the least happy.

The survey covered more than 70,000 people in 10 cities aged 20 to 40 with family income over 50,000 yuan (US$7,325) a year.

People with yearly family income between 110,000 and 200,000 yuan were the happiest. And those aged between 30 and 35 feel the happiest.

People living in second-tier cities are more satisfied with their life than their peers in larger ones such as Shanghai.

Shenzhen, a south China city that enjoys a high economic development, scored the lowest on the list but with a highest rate of mental diseases.
