Social Indicators on District Welfare Needs

This set of evidence-based social indicators is an additional tool developed to be used together with the District Welfare Planning Protocol to facilitate District Social Welfare Officers (DSWOs) of the Social Welfare Department in the district planning.  This set of social indicators is one of the means to help DSWOs map out district welfare needs profile and serves as an additional reference in relation to optimal use of welfare resources available in the districts.
