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.
Main tables on commonly used results of the 2016 Population By-census have been released by phase starting from February 2017. Users can view and download these statistical tables.
Besides, for most of the Main Tables, users may click the "More" button to access the Interactive Data Dissemination Service (IDDS) for obtaining related statistics of the tables. 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.
