Dear Census and Statistics Department,

I am part of the MAPPM programme at City University and I am working on a capstone project concerning the Work Orientation and Placement Scheme. Please could you supply us with some information?

If the information is available, we would like to know:

- Annual statistics for the total number of disabled people (of working age) living in Hong Kong

- Annual statistics for the total number of disabled people in employment in Hong Kong

Thank you for your assistance,
Tom Nickson (on behalf of City University MAPPM Capstone Group A4)

Dear Mr Nickson,

        I refer to your request for the annual statistics on the number of
disabled persons in Hong Kong made under the Code on Access to Information
on 8 March 2019.

        The Special Topics Enquiry on "Persons with disabilities and
chronic diseases" was conducted via the General Household Survey on an ad
hoc basis.  The report entitled "Social data collected via the General
Household Survey: Special Topics Report No. 62 "
([1]http://www.censtatd.gov.hk/hkstat/sub/sp...)
published by the Census and Statistics Department in December 2014 is the
latest version.  Regarding your request, reference can be made to Tables
5.1b and 5.2b in the aforementioned report.  You may wish to know that
similar enquiries were also conducted in 2007 and 2000.  You may make
reference to the Special Topics Reports No. 48 and No. 28, which are also
available for free download on the same website.

        Should you have any questions about the above-mentioned
statistical reports, please contact Household Statistics Analysis Section
of this department (Enquiry service: (852) 2887 5503; Facsimile: (852)
