Abstract

The paper presented a study which applied a quantitative analysis, based on a structured questionnaire survey, to a large variety of practical problems relevant to risk factors in the construction market from mainland China. The study provided a mature research methodology and useful discussions based on survey data. Having said this, we wish to share our opinions with the writers by commenting on problems we identified in statistical analysis, risk classification, and risk identification involved in the study.
