A round-table conference was held on June 25, 2014, discussing the subsequent data development of the National Social Science Fund Special-Authorized Project 'Survey on Social Status of Chinese Women in the New Era'.
Member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) and Director of Women's Studies Institute of China (WSIC) Tan Lin pointed out that the 'Survey on Social Status of Chinese Women in the New Era', which was directed by the ACWF, has received high-quality data and is considered a valuable research achievement. It has produced good social responses and been spoken of highly by experts in this field. The project concluded successfully.
Tan emphasized that although the project is complete, the work of the ACWF on the survey on the social status of Chinese women has not finished yet, which still requires deepening.
The Third Wave Survey on the Social Status of Chinese Women in the New Era was jointly launched by the ACWF and the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) in 2010 across 31 provinces, regions and municipalities in China and has collected 150,000 questionnaires, covering the nine aspects of health, education, economy, social security, politics, marriage and family, lifestyle, legal protection and awareness, and gender awareness and attitudes. This survey selected five social groups, including children, senior citizens, college students, people with migration experience and high-level talents, to achieve in-depth analysis of changes in the situation and social status of different groups of women.
Up until now, the published research papers and reports that employ the data in the survey amount to over 120 pieces.
A total of more than 30 national group members from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), Peking University, Renmin University of China, China University of Political Science and Law, China Women's University, Chinese National Academy of Arts and the WSIC attended the conference.
