Shandong women's social status has improved in the past decade, results of the third survey on the issue show.

The survey covered women's health, education, economy, social security, politics, marriage and family, legal rights and interests, gender concepts and attitudes. It showed Shandong women's status made great progress in seven of these areas including reproductive health, education and economy.

The statistics show Shandong women's health situation has become better, with 78.7 percent of women aged between 18 and 64 considering themselves in good health, an increase of 12.6 percent over 10 years ago.

The proportions of the women who received health check-ups and gynecological examinations in the past three years have increased by 14.4 and 8.9 percent respectively.

Women's education levels have also improved. Women aged between 18 and 64 received education for 8.85 years on average, an increase of 2.75 years over 2000, while 15.7 percent of women attained education degrees above a college diploma, an increase of 10.8 percent over 2000.

The statistics also show 73.7 percent of Shandong women aged between 18 and 64 are in paid employment. More than 40 percent of rural women have professional planting skills and more than 30 percent have food processing and handicraft skills, while 24.4 percent of rural working women do non-agricultural jobs.

Most of the interviewed women were satisfied with their family status and were playing more important roles in family affairs, with 90.5 percent saying they were satisfied with their family status. More than 70 percent of women joined in making decisions about investments, business and house buying. There was also an increase in the number of women who are concerned about social affairs.

The survey also shows gender inequality still exists in society and among families. Income differences between men and women still exist, and women still shouldered a higher proportion of housework, with more than 70 percent doing most of or all the housework.

The Shandong Women's Federation says it is a long-term mission to improve the status of women.
