文章通过问卷调查和案例分析,采用风 险重要性指标对中国承包商在中国建筑市场承包项目时,所遇到的诸多风险事件进行重要性评价和排序,并同已有的相关风险调查结果进行比较和分析。Cox- Stuart趋势增长检验方法在本次调查研究中被应用,结果表明重要性指标值所对应的方差随着风险事件重要性的降低有增长趋势,这一趋势说明受调查者对重 要性越高的风险事件认识越趋一致。文章还运用CronbachAlpha系数对问卷调查的信度进行了检验。研究结果表明中国承包商目前在中国市场面临的最 主要风险包括业主的不规范行为和不规范的建筑市场竞争等。 ||Based on questionnaires and case studies, this paper adopts an importance evaluation index and makes an importance evaluation of various risks encountered by Chinese contractors when contracting for projects in Chinese markets. This paper also makes comparisons between and analyses of the research findings and related available investigation results. The Cox stuart trend increase test method is applied in the current research, the results indicating that the variance corresponding to the importance index value tends to increase as the risk event importance decreases. This tendency shows that those investigated tend towards unanimity in terms of higher importance risk events. This paper also examines the reliability of the questionnaires by means of Cronbach’s Alpha Coefficient. The research shows that the main risk currently encountered by Chinese contractors in domestic markets includes owner’s irregular behavior and Government department’s interference in construction markets.
