The China Society Yearbook, Volume 5 continues the ten-year tradition of presenting precise and venerable academic principles by compiling the findings of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ subject research group for the “Analysis and Forecast of the Social Situation”. The focus of the research group centered around three themes for 2009-2010. First, the steps China is taking to lead the country away from the shadow of the financial crisis and begin a new stage of growth. The second focus was how to organize this new growth stage. China's development relies on upgrading the industrial structures, transforming the social and economic structures, and stimulating domestic consumption demand. Finally, the group addressed China’s policy of an overall restructuring that focuses on major societal issues such as employment, division of income, education, health and medical systems, social security, the urban-rural administration system, public institution administration, and the community and social organizational reform.
Written by contributors from professional research and survey organizations, universities, and related governmental sections,
