Hainan ranks first among all provincial-level administrative regions in China in the social environment index, according to the recent China Development Index Annual Report 2013 report published by the National Survey Research Center (NSRC) at Renmin University of China.

31 provincial-level regions were measured in the China Development Index, which consists of four separate indexes; health, education, living, and social environment with 15 indicators altogether.

Besides, the report indicated that Beijing and Shanghai were among the top two regions in the health, education and living indexes.

The report showed that air quality, road space area, unemployment rates, energy consumption per unit of GDP, and added value of tertiary industries are the main factors that affect the region’s social environment development level.
