Dear Census and Statistics Department,
I would like to ask where I can get access to the Monthly Household Income data down to specifically large street block group (LSBGs) in 2006 and 2011 Census data.
I refer to your request for the statistics on monthly household income
data of Hong Kong under the Code on Access to Information on 10 February
Kindly note that the required statistics is not readily available.
Instead, based on the results of the 2006 Population By-census and 2011
Population Census, the following 2 customised statistical tables can be
compiled for you at a charge.
Table 1 : Median monthly domestic household income by Large Street Block
Table 2 : Median monthly domestic household income by Large Street Block
The charge is set to cover all additional staff efforts, computer time and
material costs incurred in preparing the tables. In order to safeguard
data confidentiality and to avoid individual person, household or quarters
can be identified, grouping of classification variable(s) may be adopted.
Should you require the chargeable tabulation service, please inform
Demographic Statistics Section (2) of this department. The contact
details are stated in the last paragraph of this email. We will then send
you the quotation and other service details for your consideration.
A Large Street Block Group refers to a group of Street Blocks which had at
least 1 000 persons. The Planning Department sub-divides each Tertiary
Planning Unit (TPU) into a number of Street Blocks (SB) for town planning
purpose. In order to safeguard the confidentiality of data relating to
individual persons and households and for data precision concern, adjacent
SBs are grouped into Large Street Block Groups (LSBGs) by this department
for dissemination of population census/by-census results. Besides, the
boundaries of TPU/SB may be different for each round of population
Should you have any questions about population census / by-census, please
