Statistics of Hong Kong

To find statistics of Hong Kong, you can do a keyword search: hong kong statistics in the Library Catalogue; then limit by subject words or title words on specific topic needed. E.g. search s:(hong kong statistics) and transport* for statistics related to transportation in Hong Kong.

For hard copies of census reports at the Library, please search the Library catalogue by subject "census"

Ad hoc reports and special surveys conducted by the Census and Statistics Department are published as featured articles in the Monthly Digest and reports in the Thematic Household Survey or General Household Survey report series.

The Hong Kong Census & Statistics Department has a descriptive index to its publications. After you find the publication that you want, you can read the publication online (publications after Oct 2001 are available free online) or search the 1-Search for older issues.

Key Economic and Social Indicators are provided; as well as Thematic Maps and Charts by Geographic Regions.

In addition to statistical series collected on regular basis, Census and By-Census are important sources of additional statistics available at district council level or lower. Results from the latest 2016 By-census reports are available from the web site:
