A lot of attention has been paid to Chinese salaries since the list came out, with some people saying their salary was not as high as the statistics and that they were "dragging the average salary down". There are also many people said that it was not only the ranking of wages, but also the ranking of house prices.

Wages are higher in eastern regions as most of the top rankings are occupied by the Yangtze River Delta cities, while the central cities are on the decline and rank lower than the western major cities such as Chongqing, Chengdu, and Kunming.
