Latest Hong Kong population projections released
     The Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) today (September 9) released an updated set of population projections covering the next 50 years.
     With the mid-2019 population as the base, this set of projections has made use of the most up-to-date information on fertility, mortality and movement patterns of the population. Apart from the baseline population projections, high and low population projections have been compiled for reference.
     The detailed projection results, along with the projection methodology and assumptions, can be found in a publication entitled "Hong Kong Population Projections 2020-2069".
     Another publication entitled "Hong Kong Life Tables 2014-2069" has also been published. It describes the present and future mortality conditions of Hong Kong in the form of life tables and the method of constructing a life table.
     The above publications and the projected figures on labour force and households can be downloaded free of charge at the C&SD website (www.censtatd.gov.hk/hkstat/sub/sp190.jsp).
     Enquiries about more detailed statistics can be directed to the Demographic Statistics Section (1) of the C&SD (Tel: 3903 6943, or email: population@censtatd.gov.hk).
