The Demographics : Ethnic Groups

Hong Kong is a largely homogenous society, with about 94% of its people being Chinese (ethnically speaking, Han Chinese). The 2011 Population Census found (by way of self-identification) that there were about 451,000 non-Chinese people in Hong Kong, or about 6% of the population. Not all members of the non-Chinese groups are permanently settled in Hong Kong.
