Women spent more on non-traditional items last year, according to a new report that shows consumption growth in areas such as digital products, online shopping, traveling and training.
The Annual Report on Chinese Women's State of Life 2014 is based on a survey conducted in 10 major Chinese cities in 2013, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Qingdao. The survey polled 1,088 women ages 19 to 60.
In 2013, an average of 8,582.8 yuan ($1,383.50) per person was spent on digital products, the survey said.
This year's report shows that an average of 5,000 yuan per person was spent on such training, while the figure was 3,121 yuan in last year's report.
