Members of the public may gain a better understanding of the C&SD's data collection work by participating in computer and stall games set up at the roving exhibitions in the shopping arcades.

The 16BC will select a sample of about one-tenth of households for detailed enquiries on a broad range of socio-economic characteristics of the population. It will take place from June 30 to August 2 this year. For more information, please visit www.bycensus2016.gov.hk.
