BEIJING ( -- Nearly 64% of Chinese consumers aged 18 to 54 said they are "confident" or "very confident" about their economy, up by more than 25% from the first quarter of 2009, when just 50.8% of Chinese expressed that much confidence in China's economy.

Bigresearch's Prosper China March 2010 Executive Briefing report also found that a focus on needs over wants has decreased year-over-year to 41.3% during the first quarter of 2010 from 44.6% last year.
