Abstract

The aim of this study is to describe Chinese citizen's attitude towards internet censorship, and explore some variables that may affect it. A dataset that contains 1,620 cases was referred to. It was found that the interviewee’s internet usage experience had an influence on their opinion of internet censorship, and this effect was shaped by respondents' character. At the end of the paper, a structure equation model was constructed to illustrate the relations among respondents’ character, their perspective of internet's function, and their attitude to internet censorship.
