Additionally, considering central counties' economic development in 2022, a dual threshold for evaluation was set up, that is, any county qualified for evaluation should have a GDP of at least 35 billion yuan and a general public budget revenue of at least 1 billion yuan. The purpose was to better demonstrate development quality and efficiency.
