The quiz below is a reiteration of Rongcheng’s most recent rules on “creditworthiness” scores into a Q+A format, to help you understand what information is considered, and what your score might be under that system. No such questionnaire is ever actually used in Rongcheng and minimal content changes have been made to facilitate the format. This will be discussed on the results page, but you are encouraged to review the original rules for more information.
The quiz will first address questions on ‘creditworthy’ behavior in accordance with the current rules, followed by questions about “untrustworthy” conduct.
Notice that punishments in this system, are an input rather than an output – meaning that punishments received from courts, regulatory authorities, etc. are the grounds for point reductions, but a low score alone is never the basis for credit penalties and other restrictions of basic services.
Note also, that Rongcheng is a small “county-level” city that rose to prominence because it was one of the few areas with a mandatory ‘point system’ for individual creditworthiness as part of its broader local social credit system. The system is no longer mandatory as indicated in the initial questions. I wrote about how Rongcheng’s earlier system functioned in relation to China’s fuller social credit system here.
