We wish to give our feedback on the review of National Statistics dataset of Hong Kong, which shows that the dataset is rated as “not openly licensed”.
Public users can download, distribute and reproduce statistics released in the Census and Statistics Department’s website (www.censtatd.gov.hk), which are also listed in DATA.GOV.HK, free of charge for both commercial and non-commercial purposes. In fact, we share the same set of Terms and Conditions with DATA.GOV.HK (https://data.gov.hk/en/terms-and-conditions).
The message is conveyed to data users in the website’s Intellectual Property Rights Notice.
We therefore consider that the National Statistics dataset of Hong Kong, similar to other datasets of Hong Kong listed in DATA.GOV.HK (e.g. Government Spending, Procurement, Air Quality), is “openly licenced”.
