The statistical dataset comprises 1 XSD file and 1 XML file. The XSD file provides the specifications and descriptions of the statistical data structure, while the XML provides the values of statistical data. For more details, please refer to the Usage Guide of Statistical Dataset.
For town planning purpose, the whole territory of Hong Kong is divided into 291 Tertiary Planning Units (TPUs) by the Planning Department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. These TPUs are aggregated under 52 Secondary Planning Units (SPUs) at the next higher level. The SPUs are further grouped under nine Primary Planning Units (PPUs) at the highest level. Each of the TPU is identified by a unique three-digit number. The first digit of a TPU number identifies the PPU code while the first and second digits together correspond to the SPU code. Having regard to data precision and protection of data privacy of individual respondents, a TPU with less than 1000 persons is merged with adjacent TPU(s) for the release of statistics.
Please zoom in / out and click on the map to select an area, or choose the name of the area. The statistical tables for the selected area will be displayed below the map.
To obtain the statistical tables covering all TPU groupings, please click the "More" button to access the Interactive Data Dissemination Service (IDDS). Through the IDDS, users can also modify the statistical tables (say adding more statistics or classifications to the tables, or obtaining the statistics of other years) and produce charts according to their own needs.
In using the tables, users should note that since statistics based on sample enquiry are subject to sampling error, a nil figure may mean a figure of a small magnitude but not zero. Similarly, figures of small magnitude are also subject to relatively large sampling error and should be interpreted with care.
