Survey on subdivided units in Hong Kong

Transport and Housing Bureau Government of Hong Kong SAR2013-2014

The survey objective is to estimate the number of SDUs in the territory and to gather information on the profile of the tenants living therein in order to provide objective information to facilitate its deliberations on the long term housing demand of Hong Kong.  The survey covered a stratified random sample of about 18 600 buildings aged 25 and above, with the stratification factors being building age, rateable value and spatial characteristics (e.g. whether near MTR stations).  A total of 1 860 buildings were fully or partially enumerated during the period from 31 January to 30 April 2013, accounting for 10% of the total number of buildings aged 25 and above.  The enumerated buildings were distributed throughout all districts in Hong Kong.  By visiting all quarters in the buildings sampled and interviewing as far as practically possible householders living there, attempts were made in the Survey to identify quarters with SDU.  A total of 5 900 face-to-face interviews were conducted.
