    • The Secretary for the Civil Service, Mr Patrick Nip, today (July 29) visited the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) to learn more about the work of the Census Service Centre (CSC) and to show support for colleagues working at the centre.

      Mr Nip first met with the Commissioner for Census and Statistics, Ms Marion Chan, to receive an update on the department's work regarding the 2021 Population Census, learning that many people had opted to complete the questionnaire online during the epidemic. He then visited the CSC to meet with colleagues working there to learn about their work including conducting telephone interviews, answering public enquiries and making appointments for face-to-face interviews.

      Mr Nip said he was pleased to learn that in order to assist ethnic minorities in completing the Census questionnaire, simultaneous interpretation (SI) services in Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi and Nepali are put in place at the CSC for the Pakistanis, Indians and Nepalese people in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, service centres have also been set up in Yau Tsim Mong, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon City, Yuen Long, Kwai Tsing and Eastern District to provide SI services to people in need when being interviewed.

      "Conducted once every 10 years, the population census is a large-scale and important statistical exercise. It provides statistical information which is vital for the future development of Hong Kong. The data collected from the Census are useful to the Government for policy formulation as well as planning of social services and facilities, and others, both at the territory-wide level and the district level. The exercise involves thousands of civil servants and temporary staff who are making full efforts to complete their duties," Mr Nip said.

      "I am grateful to colleagues of the C&SD for their hard work as conducting a large-scale fieldwork operation under the epidemic requires their meticulous planning. I appeal to the public to support the work of the C&SD. I also hope that they will get vaccinated as soon as possible so as to protect themselves and others."

    • The Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) today (July 17) said that the 2021 Population Census (Census) would proceed to the face-to-face interviewing phase from tomorrow (July 18) until August 4. Census officers, working in pairs, will visit households that have yet to submit the completed questionnaires to collect the required information.

      The Commissioner for Census and Statistics, Ms Marion Chan, said that up to July 16, around 1.63 million households have completed the questionnaires. She appealed to households that have received the notification letters from the C&SD to participate in the Census by completing their questionnaires through online or telephone means as soon as possible, so as to reduce face-to-face contact. For those households that have received paper questionnaires, they may also return the completed questionnaires to the C&SD by post. The census officers will not visit those households that have submitted the questionnaires.

      Some households, including those without a clearly identifiable postal address (such as those residing in rural areas using communal letter boxes or those living in non-residential buildings), may not have received a notification letter by post earlier. The C&SD will arrange census officers to visit them to deliver the notification letters directly and conduct face-to-face interviews at the same time.

      Forty-four field centres have been set up for the Census in various districts. Ms Chan visited the field centre in Wan Chai today to learn more about the work of the census officers and give them encouragement. Ms Chan called for the public's support for the Census and co-operation with the census officers. The census officers will normally visit households between 1pm to 10pm from Monday to Sunday. Households may make a prior appointment for a face-to-face interview by calling the Census hotline at 18 2021.

      Ms Chan said, "The census officers can be easily recognised as they will wear a purple T-shirt uniform with a 2021 Population Census badge and carry a red satchel with the 2021 Population Census logo. They will also identify themselves with a Census Officer Certificate of Identity issued by the C&SD." She reminded the public to check carefully the identity of census officers before admitting them to their premises or providing data to them. In case of doubt, households might call the Census hotline at 18 2021 to verify their identity.

      Ms Chan stressed that data collected regarding individuals and households would be kept strictly confidential. Such information would only be used for compiling statistics but not for other purposes. All census officers had also signed a declaration not to disclose to any unauthorised persons any information that they have become aware of in the course of their duties.

      The Census is conducted under section 9 of the Census and Statistics Ordinance (Cap. 316). All persons specified are obliged to provide the required information to the C&SD. It is an offence if any person contravenes the legal requirement for completing the Census questionnaire. All questionnaires will be destroyed within 12 months after the commencement of the Census.

They will not visit those households that have submitted the questionnaire.

      The census officers, working in pairs, will wear a purple T-shirt uniform with a Census badge and carry a red satchel with the Census logo.

Up to July 8, around 710 000 households have completed questionnaires, of which about 60 per cent were submitted online.

      The spokesman stressed that the Census data is vital for the future development of Hong Kong and encouraged the public to participate in the Census. Information collected in the Census will be kept in strict confidence and will not be disclosed to any unauthorised parties.

  • Published date: 23 June 2021
    • The Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) announced today (June 23) that the 2021 Population Census commenced today.

      The Census is being conducted in two phases. During the first phase between June 23 and July 17, data of households will be collected mainly through means without involving face-to-face contact. The second phase is from July 18 to August 4, during which the public can continue to submit information by those means, and the C&SD will also arrange census officers to visit households for interviews.

      Announcing details at a press conference, the Commissioner for Census and Statistics, Ms Marion Chan, said, “The Census provides statistical information which is vital for the future development of Hong Kong. The data collected from the Census are useful to the Government for policy formulation as well as planning of social services and facilities both at the territory-wide level and the district level. The academics and the private sector also frequently use the data for conducting research and formulating business strategies.”

      Ms Chan stressed that the C&SD strives to protect the data privacy of all persons and households. Information collected in the Census will be kept in strict confidence and will not be disclosed to any unauthorised parties. Such information will only be used for compiling statistics but not for other purposes. All questionnaires will be destroyed within 12 months after the commencement of the Census.

      It is important for all households in Hong Kong to participate in the Census. About 10 per cent of the households selected through random sampling are required to provide a broad range of socio-economic characteristics of household members. The remaining 90 per cent of the households are only subject to simple enumeration to provide some basic demographic information of household members. The C&SD will issue notification letters in purple envelopes to households in batches starting from today. Households subject to the simple enumeration will receive a paper questionnaire enclosed in the notification letters.

      In light of COVID-19, to minimise face-to-face contact and maintain social distancing, the C&SD called on all households, including owner-occupiers or tenants, who have received a notification letter, to provide the required information by one of the following means:
      (1) Completing an online questionnaire (by activating the online questionnaire through scanning the QR code on the notification letter or the enclosed questionnaire, or through the secured thematic website of the Census (www.census2021.gov.hk));
      (2) Conducting a telephone interview (by calling the Census Service Centre hotline at 18 2021); or
      (3) Mailing back the completed questionnaire (applicable to households who have received a paper questionnaire).

      For households who have completed their questionnaires by the above non-face-to-face means, census officers will not visit their residence to collect data during the second phase of the Census starting from July 18.

      Ms Chan appealed to households to use the online questionnaire. Individual household members can use their smartphones, desktop computers or mobile tablets to complete and submit the online questionnaire anytime and anywhere, which is convenient, secure and green.

      The Census is conducted under section 9 of the Census and Statistics Ordinance (Cap. 316). All persons specified are obliged to provide the required information. It is an offence if any persons contravene the legal requirement for completing the Census questionnaire.

      The Census Service Centre has commenced operation, with service hours from 9am to 10.30pm daily until August 16 (including public holidays). Members of the public may call the Census Service Centre hotline at 18 2021 if they have any questions in completing the questionnaire. They may also visit the thematic website of the Census (www.census2021.gov.hk) to obtain more information.
