2nd phase of 2021 census to start

The Census & Statistics Department said today it will carry out the second phase of the 2021 Population Census data collection from July 18 to August 4.   Census officers will visit households that have yet to submit their questionnaires to conduct face-to-face interviews, but will not call on those who have already submitted the questionnaire.   The census officers, working in pairs, will wear a purple T-shirt uniform with a 2021 census badge and carry a red satchel with the census logo. They will also identify themselves with a census officer identity certificate issued by the department. Households should check their identity carefully before admitting them to their premises or providing data.   The department appealed to households to participate in the census before July 18 by responding to their questionnaires online, by phone or by post in order to reduce face-to-face contact.   It noted that as of July 8, around 710,000 households had completed the questionnaires, of which about 60% were submitted online.   It also stressed that the census data is vital for Hong Kong’s future development, and encouraged the public to participate in the census. Information collected will be kept in strict confidence and will not be disclosed to unauthorised parties.   The department added that specified people must provide the required information in the census. It is an offence to contravene the legal requirement for completing the questionnaire.
