First, follow-up checks of poverty registration. In late 2013, the central authorities issued the Decision on Creating New Mechanisms for Promoting Rural Poverty Alleviation and Development, devising methods to identify impoverished targets, having every poor village and household registered, and building a nationwide unified information system of poverty alleviation. In 2014, the State Council Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development issued the Plan for Poverty Alleviation Registration and the Index System for Poverty Alleviation Registration. The two documents set national unified standards and procedures for poverty registration. From August 2015 to June 2016, follow-up checks were made of the 2014 registration information, which identified 8.07 million additional impoverished people and removed 9.29 million false ones from the register, thus making the information more accurate.
Second, follow-up checks on poverty elimination. Starting in 2019, the Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development has conducted such follow-up checks to make sure that every household has really escaped poverty and faces no danger of slipping back into poverty. Through follow-up checks, corresponding measures will be taken targeting the problems and difficulties every family encounters.
