Hukou Difficulty Index

Clicking on each colored dot will lead you to the results of each city. These include a ranking of all 40 cities and key criteria that were used to determine the city-specific results. The criteria for each city are represented as relatively easier or harder than the average, which is set at zero (below average = easier; above average = harder). You’ll also see a headline score to denote the difficulty of that city (100 = most liberal; 0 = most restrictive). In addition, to discover which city you belong in, click on “Find My City” and submit your criteria to be taken to your city.
