Song also answered at the conference journalists' questions relating to the Third Survey, which has completed preliminary data collection in the form of 105,573 valid questionnaires filled out by participants aged 18 and over, and 20,405 valid questionnaires filled out by children aged 10 to 17.

Song introduced the Survey under the 14 headings of health status, educational level, economic status, social security, politics, marriage and family, lifestyle, awareness of legal rights and interests, attitudes toward gender, girls' situation, situation of elderly women, situation of women college students, situation of migrant and left-behind women, and situation of high-level women talents.

The Third Survey on Chinese Women's Social Status, jointly launched and organized by the ACWF and State Statistics Bureau, is a nationwide decennial survey of the common concerns of women that follows the first and second surveys conducted respectively in 1990 and 2000.

Carried out on December 1, 2010, it covers the nine aspects of health, education, economy, social security, politics, marriage and family, lifestyle, awareness of legal rights and attitudes to gender.

To achieve in-depth analysis of changes in the situation and social status of different groups of women, this survey focuses on five social groups. They are: children; senior citizens; college students; workers affected by population flow; and high-level talents.
