Trend of Hiring Foreign Domestic Helpers at Home in Hong Kong, 1981-2011

By analyzing 1% and 5% Public Use Micro-data from the Census and By-Census of Hong Kong between 1981-2011, this study will explore the socioeconomic patterns of those families who hire domestic helpers at home, and investigate the patterns by the nationalities of the domestic helpers. The study also aims at investigating the trend on how the socioeconomic factors play a role in making the decision of hiring domestic helpers at home (i.e. family size, household characteristics, income level, education level, marital status, age of the household head, household types etc.).
