This system has underpinned a sharp divide between rural and urban residents (Cook 2001). Rural residents have been entitled to little more than access to the means of agricultural production and minimal financial support has been provided for the poorest people. Urban residents have been entitled to a wide range of benefits in what Solinger (1999) calls ‘the urban public goods regime’. Largescale migration and the ‘urbanization’ of peri-urban areas have led to a blurring of the sharp rural–urban divide and some provinces have begun to end the registration system.

According to a survey by the Ministry of Civil Affairs in 2000, about 14 million urban residents were receiving financial support because they had incomes below the local poverty line (Hussain 2003). This accounted for around 3 per cent of the 458 million registered urban residents. Hussain (2003) points out that many more people have incomes close to the poverty level. The urban poor face serious financial barriers to medical care (Dong 2003). The government has recently announced that it will provide a basic health benefit for the poor, while local governments are experimenting with alternative benefit designs.
