From projection, it is estimated that the population in Hong Kong would increase from 7 million in 2009 to 7.66 million by 2019. This set of maps shows the yearly distribution of the projected population by district. There are altogether 18 districts. The main increases would take place in districts in the New Territories. Overall, Shatin, Kwun Tong and Yuen Long continue to be the most populous districts in 2024. The proportion of elderly people would increase significantly, more notably in Wan Chai and Eastern District on Hong Kong Island. Data for the maps were taken from the government report “Projections of population distribution 2015-2024” released by the Planning Department in December 2015.
