Projections of population distribution could be of useful reference in urban planning, which would support effective resource allocation at local levels in future.

The map shows the spatial distribution of the percentage changes of projected population in Hong Kong. It reflects the pace of urbanization and illustrates the availability of new land for development.

The situation is portrayed at 2 levels – the larger District Council district and small tertiary planning unit. As depicted by graduated colours, Tertiary Planning Units in northern New Territories would experience a faster rate of population growth by 2015. The arrow signs indicate the projected population change for larger geographic regions during 2009 -2019. The population growth is moderate in the urbanized south compared to the north. For some districts and new towns with aging population and long development history, such as Wong Tai Sin and Tsing Yi, decrease in population is anticipated.

The data for the map was obtained from Planning Department of the Hong Kong Government.

人口推算分佈具參考價值,有助地區層面的城市規劃及未來資源分配。

地圖從兩個層面—較大的區議會選區及小規劃統計區—顯示香港的人口推算分佈,並同時反映各地理分區的城市化階段及土地的可發展程度。

依圖中顏色所示,至2015年,新界北部的小規劃統計區將出現較快的人口增長。箭號標示了於2009至2019年間較大的地理區域中推算的人口變化。一般而言,相對於北面,都市化的南面人口增長將逐漸放緩。人口老化嚴重且發展已久的地區或新市鎮如黃大仙及青衣等,人口更有下降的趨勢。
