In order to meet the requests from policy bureaux and government departments for statistical data on selected social issues, the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) started a series of Thematic Household Survey (THS) in 1999 such that certain enquiries for statistical information on social topics proposed by individual bureaux/departments would be packaged together to form different rounds of THS and contracted-out to private research firms.

A round of THS was conducted during October to November 2000 to collect information on pattern of cigarette smoking, understanding of the Basic Law, views on employment of domestic helpers and pattern of purchasing fresh food produce.
