Abstract
:
The residency and mobility patterns of Hong Kong residents have been changing considerably with increasingly close tie between Hong Kong and the Mainland. Many Hong Kong Permanent Residents have moved their residence to the Mainland, either permanently or for extended period of time. In the light of this, the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) conducted a round of Thematic Household Survey (THS) during November 2004 to January 2005 to collect information on the socio-economic characteristics of Hong Kong residents having resided / having stayed substantially in the Mainland (HKRM) and their experience while staying in the Mainland.C&SD recently collated relevant information on HKRM. With reference to the administrative data on passenger movement of Hong Kong residents, the method for compiling statistics on HKRM was enhanced. This article describes the enhanced method for compiling statistics on HKRM and presents the revised survey findings of THS on the basis of the enhanced method.
