Official statistics comprise statistics compiled by the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) and those compiled by various policy bureaux and other government departments. Broadly speaking, statistics which are of a general purpose and useful to various functional areas are compiled by the C&SD while those relating to more specific functional areas are compiled by the bureaux/departments concerned. This Section provides hyperlinks to relevant websites for facilitating retrieval of official statistics compiled by other government departments.
Although great care has been exercised, the Census and Statistics Department is unable to warrant that these hyperlinks are valid at all times, and that the contents contained therein are most up-to-date and accurate. If necessary, the user is encouraged to conduct his/her own enquiries to verify any particular piece of information provided. For such enquiries, please direct them to the departments concerned.
