Footnote
All figures are collected from Census and Statistics Department since 1999.
Figure for 1981 is not available, since General Household Survey was first conducted in late 1981. Figure for 1982 is therefore used as a proxy for 1981.
According to C&SD (25Sep2009), starting from the year 2001, annual figures derived from the General Household Survey (GHS) may be different from those in the earlier edition. For the previous edition, the annual figures are compiled based on the average data for the four quarters of the year concerned. Starting from this edition, these statistics are compiled based on data collected in the General Household Survey in January to December each year as well as the mid-year population estimates by District Council district compiled jointly by the Census and Statistics Department and an inter-departmental Working Group on Population Distribution Projections.All figures are collected from Census and Statistics Department since 1999.
