In China the hukou system determines access to education, health care, social security and other such rights and benefits. This report gives details of the thresholds for different Chinese cities that are required in order to obtain an urban hukou. The graph shows the index of thresholds for different cities. Guangzhou requires outsiders to invest 5 million yuan in order to get a household registration there. Whereas in Shanghai, as investment is so high, the city prefers to use taxes paid as a criteria: one million yuan of tax payments are required. In Beijing the threshold is payment of 800,000 yuan of tax for three consecutive years. Hence in this graph, big cities like Shanghai and Beijing have very high threshold indexes.
