Homeownership Hong Kong Housing Policy
This study investigates Hong Kong people’s perceptions of homeownership and their evaluation of the Hong Kong government’s housing policy, as determined by a random telephone survey of 1,011 people aged 18 or above conducted in 2009. This study also explores the relationship between homeownership and satisfaction with children’s study/career development, worry about retirement security, and overall life satisfaction. It was found that most Hong Kong people agree that homeownership confers long-term benefits, feel that the government has the responsibility to help lower-class people with their housing, and support government efforts to tighten regulations on property developers. Controlling for socio-economic background, the study also found that people’s living environment has a significant impact on their satisfaction with children’s study/career development, worry about retirement security, and overall life satisfaction. It was also found that homeownership has no significant influence on living environment, satisfaction with children’s study/career development, and worry about retirement security, but has a significant influence on overall life satisfaction.
