Questionnaire Survey

Introduction

To identify the profile and service needs of the new arrivals from the Mainland, the Home Affairs Department, since 1996, conducts regular surveys on new arrivals from the Mainland who are aged 11 and above and who have arrived in Hong Kong for less than one year when they apply for their Hong Kong Identity Cards at the Registration of Persons-Kowloon Office. In addition, a data collection mechanism was set up by the Immigration Department to collect data on the demographic and social characteristics of one-way permit holders when they first entered Hong Kong via the Lo Wu control point.

With effect from the third quarter of 2002, after analysing the data collected from the two surveys, the survey results have been distributed to relevant Government departments and NGOs in the form of quarterly reports, with a view to providing them with more useful information in their service planning.

You are welcome to take a look at the latest reports which have been uploaded onto this homepage.
