This report presents some of the most noteworthy findings regarding Cross-Strait relations from a public opinion survey conducted online in Taiwan and China.
In Taiwan, the survey was conducted between April and June 2022 with a research sample of 1,350 respondents representative of the general population based on the quotas of gender, age (18-65 years), and region within the country. In Mainland China, the data was collected in March 2022 based on a survey of 3,039 respondents. Likewise, the sample was representative of the Chinese population respective to gender, age, and residence in the Chinese regions.
These surveys are part of a broader research project, ‘Sinophone Borderlands – Interaction at the Edges,’ funded by the European Regional Development Fund and run by Palacky University Olomouc in collaboration with the Central European Institute of Asian Studies (CEIAS). The survey in Taiwan was part of a wider survey of 15 Indo-Pacific countries. More outcomes from this research project will follow in the future.
