Dear Elaine,

I refer to your application made under the Code on Access to Information
sent to us on 13.4.2021 and provide the answers below for your reference.
The General Household Survey (GHS) is a continuous sample survey to
collect information on the labour force, employment, unemployment and
underemployment, as well as the demographic and socio-economic
characteristics of the population.  The technical details of the survey
could be found in the survey report Quarterly Report on General Household
Survey
([1]https://www.censtatd.gov.hk/en/EIndexbyS...).

Per your request, the following statistics compiled from the results of
the GHS can be provided for your reference [File : Tables 1 to 5.xlsx].
        Table 1 : Number of single parents living with own child(ren)
aged below 18 in domestic households, 2019-2020
        Table 2 : Number of employed single mothers living with own
child(ren) aged below 18 in domestic households, 2019-2020
        Table 3 : Number of single mothers living with own child(ren)
aged below 18 in domestic households by age, 2019-2020
        Table 4 : Median monthly employment earnings of employed single
parents living with own child(ren) aged below 18 in domestic households by
sex, 2019-2020
        Table 5 : Median hours of work of employed single parents living
with own child(ren) aged below 18 in domestic households by sex, 2019-2020

As the tables are not readily available and shall be specifically compiled
for you, a charge (HK$1,209.2) to cover the cost involved in compiling
these statistical tables will be levied.  Should you decide to acquire the
tables, please arrange for payment of the above charge.  Payment can be
made by sending us a crossed cheque of a bank in Hong Kong or a bank draft
in exact amount and made payable to “The Government of the HKSAR” to the
following address:

and the output will be delivered after the payment procedure has been
successfully completed.

The official receipt of your payment will be sent to you via surface mail.
 Please provide your address in your confirmation reply for the official

more options for payment method).  For payment methods available for
