Note :  
  The above are the most updated reports so far released by the Census and Statistics Department.  
  Owing to rounding, there may be a slight discrepancy between the sum of individual items and the total as shown in the table.  
  The boundaries of the Wan Chai district and Eastern district adopted in the 2016 Population By-census are not comparable with those adopted in the 2011 Population Census.  Therefore, figures of the Wan Chai and Eastern districts for 2016 are not strictly comparable with those for 2011 in this table.  
                 
 
  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.
