Three-quarters of the US public (74%) indicate having a happy family as their current personal goal, consistent with 2007…. Wealth and family are the two priorities of the Chinese public: 48.6% give greater weight to being rich, and 45.1% hope to have a happy family…. In 2007, to have a happy family ranked first, but in 2011, the percentage drops (53.5% -> 45.1%), whereas the percentage of those selecting “to be rich” rises (42.3% -> 48.6%).
