* Figures are not released owing to very large sampling error.

Notes:
Figures less than 3 000 persons are compiled based on a small number of observations and had relatively large sampling errors. They should be interpreted with caution.

Figures may not add up to the totals owing to rounding.

Methodology for deriving the demographic (other than age and sex) and socio-economic characteristics of the population in each District Council (DC) district for the year of conducting Population Census/By-census is different from that for the years between the conduct of Population Census and By-census. This factor should be taken into account in comparing the statistics by DC district across years.

The boundaries of the Wan Chai district and Eastern district adopted since 2016 are not comparable with those adopted before 2016. Therefore, figures of the Wan Chai and Eastern districts since 2016 are not strictly comparable with those before 2016 in these tables.

Domestic household consists of a group of persons who live together and make common provision for essentials for living. These persons need not be related. If a person makes provision for essentials for living without sharing with other persons, he/she is also regarded as a household. In this case, the household is a one-person household. Households comprising only non-Hong Kong residents or Mobile Residents are not classified as domestic households.

Monthly household income refers to the total cash income, including earnings (before deduction of Mandatory Provident Fund contributions) from all jobs and other cash incomes received in the month before enumeration by all members of the household. Other cash income includes income generated from rent income, interest, dividends, regular/monthly pensions and insurance annuity benefits, regular contribution from persons outside the household, regular contribution from charities and all government subsidies.
