census data at TPU level

We're waiting for Cheryl Yung to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Census and Statistics Department,

I am requesting the census data at TPU level of 2001, 2006, 2011 and 2016, as I cannot generate them from the "Create you own table" page at the C&SD website. Do you have a list of variables I can choose from?

I am also requesting the data at TPU level for the Thematic Household Survey Report no.63 - Health status of Hong Kong residents (and, if possible, previous years).

Yours faithfully,

Cheryl Yung

Census and Statistics Department

Dear Cheryl,

        I refer to your request for information on census data and
thematic household survey data at TPU level made under the Code on Access
to Information on 11 March 2019.  Our responses are as follows:

(A) Census data at TPU level
2.        Regarding your enquiry, the following statistical tables are
attached below for your reference. These tables can be obtained by "Build
Your Census Tables" through the Interactive Data Dissemination Service
(IDDS) on the 2016 Population By-census Website (Link :
[1]https://www.bycensus2016.gov.hk/en/bc-ow...).

Table 1 : Population by Small Tertiary Planning Unit Group and Year (2016)
Table 2 : Population by Small Tertiary Planning Unit Group and Year (2011)
Table 3 : Population by Small Tertiary Planning Unit Group and Year (2006)

3.        IDDS is a service which enables the public to build and
customise their own statistical tables online with data of population
census/by-census.  With only a web browser, you may build your own
statistical tables or various types of charts easily with statistics and
classifications you desire.  You are recommended to try IDDS and you may
find demonstration videos on how to use IDDS in the following link
([2]https://www.bycensus2016.gov.hk/en/bc-de...).

4.        Moreover, the table “Population by Small Tertiary Planning Unit
Group, 2001” is provided for your reference.

5.        The lists of the variables in relation to the Large Tertiary
Planning Unit Group (LTPUG) / Small Tertiary Planning Unit Group (STPUG)
are attached below for your reference.

6.        Please note that individual TPUs with less than 10 000 and 1 000
persons are merged with adjacent TPU(s) to form the LTPUGs and STPUGs
respectively in disseminating census statistics owing to data precision
concern.  Besides, the boundaries of TPUs may be different for each round
of population census / by-census.

7.        Should you have any questions about population census /
by-census, please feel free to contact Demographic Statistics Section (2)
(Enquiry service: (852) 3903 6944 ; Facsimile: (852) 2716 0231 ; E-mail:
[email address] ) direct.

(B) Thematic Household Survey Report No. 63 data - Health status of Hong
Kong residents at TPU level
8.        Thematic Household Survey (THS) is conducted at the request of
bureaux / departments to collect statistical data on social topics for
Hong Kong as a whole.  Geographical breakdowns of the requested THS
results by TPU level are not available.  

With best regards,
