The Working Group on Population Distribution Projections (WGPD) completed in June 2018 the compilation of the projections of population distribution for 2018-2026, which adopted the latest Census and Statistics Department's projections of territorial population released in September 2017 as the control totals.
Forecast housing supply data adopted by the projections have taken into account all planning information of housing development proposals that were known up to the second quarter of 2017 and other assumptions.
The WGPD compiles projected distributions of population by District Council District (DCD), New Town, as well as Tertiary Planning Unit (TPU). In addition, the projected age structures of population in individual DCDs and New Towns are also compiled.
Please refer to the disclaimer before using results of the projections of population distribution 2018 – 2026.
More information about the background, projection method and geographical demarcation adopted in compiling and disseminating results of the projections of population distribution 2018 - 2026 are available in the report "Projections of Population Distribution 2018 – 2026".
