An overwhelming majority of young people believe they would be better off in Singapore. About 85 per cent of those aged under 30 picked the city-state as an 'ideal living place' compared with just 25 per cent who said home was best. Tokyo got 55 per cent backing. The survey, by the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, found young residents were generally dissatisfied with the living environment and the Government's performance in providing a place for a 'healthy life'. The respondents gave the Government's efforts in raising 'healthy life' awareness a score of 5.3 points out of 10. As a good place to live, Hong Kong scored only 5.8 points. Almost seven out of 10 young people thought the Government should improve quality of life for its residents. They said the most serious problems were poor air quality, too much rubbish and water pollution. Respondents agreed personal hygiene, not smoking and drinking, doing exercise and eating breakfast every day were necessary for a healthy lifestyle. About 60 per cent said they exercised or ate fruit every day and more than 15 per cent smoked or drank. The 511 people aged 15 to 29 were interviewed for the survey last month.
