"The Profile of Persons Residing in Private Elderly Homes in 2018"

Results of the survey together with some other administrative records are used in the General Household Survey to estimate the age-sex profile of the land-based non-institutional population of Hong Kong. The feature article gives a brief account of the results of the 2018 round of Annual Survey on Profile of Inmates of PEH.
