Abstract : In this session comments are made for survey research in China on statistical work in the People's Republic of China. The governmental statistical system is largely a reporting system with data fed through the system from initial reporting units through provincial or municipal statistical offices to the State Statistical Bureau. Probably too much data is collected too often; the system needs to be streamlined. More frequent use of survey sampling methods is indicated. The Chinese universities have been reestablished and undergraduate education seems to be back on the track. Graduate programs in statistics must be developed. There is a need to train many new faculty members in statistics. This need is recognized and a beginning has been made; we can expect many more students from China in the future.
