Statistics is playing an increasingly important role in the day-to-day work in the Government and the private sector. As the central statistical office of Hong Kong, the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) has been putting efforts to provide adequate, relevant, reliable and timely statistics for use by the Government and various sectors of the community.
From macro-economic analysis to daily administration and long-term planning of the Government, to decision-making of industrial and business firms, and to enhancing the general public’s understanding of the society and their participation in discussions about social policies, official statistics have a very important part to play in a wide range of endeavours. Some of the statistics that are closely related to our daily lives are introduced below.
Dressing, eating, accommodation and commuting
