Average length of detention - Mau Tau Kok

We're waiting for Surabhi Chopra to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Immigration Department,

I am writing to make a data access request about the average length detention of detainees at Mau Tau Kok Detention Centre. May I know, in each of the years between 2018-20:

a) the number of detainees admitted in each year and the average length of detention (in days)

b) the detainee population on 31 December of each year and the average length of detention (in days)

If a CSV or Excel format is possible, I would greatly appreciate it. Otherwise PDF or similar would be fine as well.

Yours faithfully,

Surabhi Chopra
