**********************************************************

     The 2014 Edition of Statistical Digest of the Services Sector is published by the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) today (May 22). The Digest is now available for download (in PDF format) free of charge at the website of the C&SD (www.censtatd.gov.hk/hkstat/sub/sp70.jsp?productCode=B1080007).

     During the past decade, the services sector in the Hong Kong economy has gained greater prominence. Accurate and detailed statistics play an important role in support of the Government's initiatives on promoting the services sector. The C&SD has accordingly compiled this annual publication.

     The Digest brings together in one volume the more important statistical series on 15 major service industries/domains of Hong Kong. Different types of statistics for a specific service industry/domain are presented in a dedicated section of the Digest, supported by graphical presentations, for easy reference and interpretation. Most of the statistics presented cover the year 2003 and each of the years from 2009 to 2013, to facilitate comparison over the past decade. Where appropriate, quarterly statistics from the third quarter of 2012 to the fourth quarter of 2013 are also provided to show the latest short-term economic performance of selected service industries/domains within the services sector of Hong Kong.
