The map shows the variation of Child Dependency Ratio and Elderly Dependency Ratio across 18 districts in Hong Kong for the year 2006. These ratios indicate the theoretical fraction of population which are ‘dependent’ on the adult working population. Normally this would mean either young children or elderly. Elderly Dependency ratio is generally lower than Child Dependency Ratio. Interestingly, districts with a higher Child Dependency Ratio tend to have a lower Elderly Dependency ratio and vice versa.

Data were obtained from the 2006 Population By-census through the Census and Statistics Department.

圖示二零零六年香港十八區少年兒童撫養比率和老年撫養比率的分佈。理論上,這些數值反映各區倚賴成年就業人數的人口比例。一般來說,兒童和長者需要其他有能力的人仕撫養。有趣的是,高老年撫養比率地區剛好是少年兒童撫養比率低,而老年撫養比率則比少年兒童撫養比率相對低。
