The hukou system is a system of household registration in China that links social benefits like health care, education, and pensions to a person's place of birth (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hukou_system). Current practice requires citizens in most parts of the country to return to their hometowns to receive social benefits, but many observers are now calling for reforms that would allow citizens to receive benefits in their place of residence as well as a way to stimulate economic growth and preserve social stability (see http://blogs.wsj.com/chinarealtime/2013/08/19/is-hukou-reform-the-key-to-reviving-chinas-economy/). The Central Committee as currently composed is expected to hold its third plenary meeting in November 2013, and Party leaders have launched other major reforms during third plenaries in the past (see http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/indepth/2013-08/30/c_125287154.htm). A "yes" resolution requires a public statement by an official representative of the Communist Party of China stating that hukou reform will be implemented nationwide before 1 January 2015. Reforms limited to certain localities or provinces will not suffice to produce a "yes" resolution; proposed reforms must apply nationwide. The announced changes do not have to occur at the same time in all parts of the country, but the plan announced by the Party or government must state that implementation of the proposed reforms will be completed nationwide before 1 January 2015. An announcement that the Party or government is studying or will study hukou reform will not produce a "yes" resolution; the announcement must state that the Party or government is in fact reforming or plans to reform the hukou system. Outcome will be resolved based on reporting from one or more of the following sources: BBC News or Reuters or Economist Online (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/ or http://www.reuters.com/ or http://www.economist.com). If nothing is reported in these sources, then outcome (b) will typically be assumed, but administrator reserves the right to use other sources as needed, provided those sources do not directly contradict concurrent event reporting from BBC News, Reuters, or Economist Online. In cases of substantial controversy or uncertainty, Administrator may refer the question to outside subject matter experts, or we may deem the question invalid/void. The question will remain open until the next plenary meeting is completed, as long as it is completed before 1 January 2015. "Before" should be interpreted to mean at or prior to the end (23:59:59 ET) of the previous day.
