Notes : #Provisional figures.
 ##Change of less than 0.05%.
 (1)Per 1 000 population.
 (2)Per 1 000 female population excluding female foreign domestic helpers.
 (3)Per 1 000 population aged 15-64.
 (4)Total fertility rates presented in this table may be different from those presented earlier. It is partly because the coverage of live births born in Hong Kong to Mainland women used in the compilation of the total fertility rate has been revised to include live births born in Hong Kong to Mainland women transients (whose spouses are Hong Kong residents) holding People's Republic of China passports.
 The Population Census conducted from June to August 2011 provided a benchmark for revising the population figures compiled since the 2006 Population By-census. Population-related figures from 2007 to 2010 have been revised accordingly.
