This book presents the findings of the fourth territory-wide Social Indicators Survey conducted largely during the period of May to August 1995. The focus of the survey is on subjective indicators, which include the perceptions, feelings, aspirations, values, beliefs, behavioural tendencies, grievances, and the sense of well-being of Hong Kong residents in different walks of life. The target population comprises adults aged 18 or above who are living in Hong Kong. The questionnaire used in this survey is divided into two parts. The first part is a core component, to be answered by all respondents, on quality of life. This core section is a permanent feature of the periodic survey so that social trends can be measured. The second part consists of a number of modules on special topics, and each module is answered by a sub-sample of the respondents. In this survey, there are five special modules: (1) education and religion; (2) family, political participation, materialism and social values; (3) housing, gender and mental health; (4) political and legal culture; and (5) leisure, privacy and housing density.
