Household Survey

To have a comprehensive understanding of the Health, Happiness and Harmony (3Hs) status of our local families, the FAMILY Project has been conducting a territory-wide household survey, using high-end devices, such as touchscreen portable computers and accelerometers to collect data. Data collected include personal and family particulars, lifestyles (such as eating and physical activities), physical and psychological health, happiness index, family harmony index, religious beliefs, neighborhood relationships, work status, and use of medical and social resources, etc. This study will be a tracking survey of 20,000 households to be conducted over 5 years through household visits, telephone or web-based follow ups.
