MDR (2000), percentage calculated by author based on figures of Table 11. The four tenures (public rented, public owner-occupied, private rented and private owner occupied) refer to those living in permanent housing. They do not add up to 100 per cent because they have not included the remaining 2 per cent households in rent free permanent housing and 1 per cent households living in housing provided by their employer. According to the survey conducted between January to May 1999, there were a total of 1 982 150 households in Hong Kong of which 1 927 570 were households living in permanent housing and 54 580 households living in temporary housing.

MDR (2000) Table 7, p. 23. The figure reflects the average flat size of 1.982 million households in both permanent and temporary housing in Hong Kong as inferred from the survey results. The floor area for a domestic unit is its ‘saleable area’. ‘Saleable area’ is defined by the Rating and Valuation Department as the floor area exclusively allocated to the unit including balconies and verandas but excluding common areas such as stairs, lift shafts, pipe ducts, lobbies and communal toilets. It is measured from the outside of the exterior enclosing walls of the unit and the middle of the party walls between two units. Bay windows, yards, gardens, terraces, flat roofs, carports and the like are excluded from the area

See Hong Kong Government (2000). Figures refer to end September of the year. Figures for 1999 exclude quarters sold under the Housing Authority Tenant Purchase Scheme. Subsidised sale flats include quarters built under the Home Ownership Scheme, the Private Sector Participation Scheme and the Middle Income Housing Scheme of the Hong Kong Housing Authority and those built under the Flat for Sale Scheme and the Sandwich Class Housing Scheme of the Hong Kong Housing Society. Figures for 1999 also cover quarters sold under the Housing Authority Tenant Purchase Scheme, which were previously included under public rental housing in 1998 and earlier.

Information provided by the Hong Kong Housing Authority and Hong Kong Housing Society in March 1997.
5
Before 1973 these tasks were separately carried out by various bodies: the former Resettlement Department built and managed resettlement housing blocks; the former housing organisation which was also known as the Hong Kong Housing Authority previously was charged with the responsibilities to build and manage low cost housing and housing blocks built by the then Hong Kong Housing Authority.
6
Since 11 September 1998, tenants affected by squatter clearance are also subject to the same means tests (income and net assets tests) applied on the public rental housing general waiting list applicants who are currently living in private tenancy.
7
HK$7.8 = US$1.
8
Private tenant households earning between HK$33 001 and HK$60 000 per month in April 1997, not owning domestic properties, and with net assets below HK$1.2 million are classified as sandwich class.
