Abstract


In this paper, we make empirical analysis on the well-being of urban residents and its influencing factors from the perspective of green growth by using the survey data from the studying team which made the Urban Green Growth and Public Well-Being Investigation on 19 jurisdictional counties (districts and cities) of Chengdu City in August, 2015. The results suggest that residents’ well-being has obvious regional differences, and the main city zone has the lowest green well-being while the third city cycle-layer has the highest green well-being. From the view of internal influencing factors of the resident well-being, the results show that age and income are positively correlated with the residents’ green well-being, and the former correlation is significant, while residents’ well-being of Chengdu is negatively correlated with the educational level. From the view of external influencing factors, green cover percentage, air quality and water quality are positively correlated with the residents’ green well-being, while waste treatment and amount of factory have no significant correlations with residents’ green well-being.
