The year 2022 not only marks the 25th year of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, but is also the 55th anniversary of the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD). Over the past 55 years, C&SD has compiled diversified economic and social statistics, reflecting the development of Hong Kong. In commemoration of this remarkable occasion, we have launched this web-based exhibition to highlight the major events and accomplishments in our history, the values we have been upholding, and our future direction of development. One may also browse through a series of interactive dashboards to learn more about the social development of the territory.
With the concerted efforts of C&SD colleagues over the past years, a reputable official statistical system has been established in Hong Kong. However, quality statistics could never have been achieved with our endeavours alone. Indeed, the majority of statistics are compiled from the raw data provided by individuals and establishments. Taking this opportunity, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all data providers for supporting our work over the years.
As our anniversary slogan “Delivering Trusted Statistics with Professionalism” puts it, our persistent commitment to professionalism has commanded trust from different sectors of the community. Looking ahead, we will continue to progress with the times and build upon our strengths to provide objective and reliable statistics while striving to serve the community with dedication.
