中国论文网 /2/view-13092872.htm
  Part One: background and goal of the survey
  Foreign brands, which are known for their high quality and service, are being involved in scandals on a regular basis. Toyota’s fame is greatly damaged because of its vehicles stuck gas pedal; Carrefour and Wal-Mart are criticized for their “price frauds”; Hewlett Packard became notorious for the sale of second-hand laptops.
  What influence do these scandals have on consuming behavior of the Chinese consumers? Did their attitude change towards foreign brands? What do they consider the best foreign bands? … Global Times made an online survey to find answers to these questions.
  
  Part Two: the Survey
  One: Method
  Global Times sent questionnaires to the Internet users in different places in China. Having received the survey, people may choose whether they want to answer the questions or not.
  Two: Contents
  The survey consists of questions on the respondents’ attitude towards foreign brands. It includes questions on Chinese peoples’ most favorite and least favorite foreign brand and the changes of their attitude towards foreign brands in one year.
  Three: Time
  The survey lasted from March 5-11, 2011.
  Four: Respondents
  All the respondents are Internet users who visit the website of Global Times regularly or have a subscription to Global Times.
  By 13:00 on March 11, 1411 questionnaires were submitted. The detailed information about respondents are listed as follows:

Only 3% of respondents thought better of foreign brands. 39.3% of respondents hold the same attitude towards foreign brands as before. The remaining 3% answered with “I don’t know”.

Only 2.8% stayed true to foreign brands. Finally, 3.5% of the respondents did not have an opinion. The graph below shows the details.

  Four: Most respondents did not believe that all foreign brands acted according to international standards. 15.9% of them even thought that none of foreign brands acted according to international standards. 48.3% thought that the amount of foreign brands that did not act according to international standards took a bigger proportion. 24.5% thought that a lesser amount of foreign brands rejected international standards. Only 3.2% of the respondents believed that international standards remained a norm to foreign companies. 8.1% refused to make a guess by saying “I don’t know”.

  However, about 30.1% of the respondents gave foreign brands the “just so so” evaluation. About 6.4% of the respondents thought that foreign brands were “not good and needed improvement”. “Too bad” answered 4% of the respondents and 2.4% seemed to know nothing about this question. The following graph will provide a representation of these results.

Surprisingly, only 22.6% got information from advertisements. The online reviews also are a big source because 14.4% of the respondents took them as advice. 2.8% of the respondents failed to answer where they received information on foreign brands. Below is the graph with the details.
