The attitudes of university students towards crisis events: a survey in Beijing
In this paper, a survey was conducted on the impacts of characters and social-economic environments of Beijing university students on their awareness and concerns in crisis management. On the basis of quantitative analysis of statistical data, the relationship between five aspects of people's character (including living attitude, attitude to changes, basic inclination, self-orientation and ambitiousness) and the awareness and concerns towards crisis events was revealed. The conclusions will be helpful for further study and development in the area of crisis management.
