This chapter illustrates some of the trends and contemporary situations faced by young people in Hong Kong by looking at two studies. The first is “Youth Trends in Hong Kong 2004–2006” that shows findings regarding the young people's population and family, potentials and education, economic independence, social participation, physical and mental health, and behavioral health through acquiring and analyzing important statistics from government offices and departments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The second study, “Family Relationships of the Only Children,” is a comparative study that attempts to look into how children from one-child families are affected by family relationships, and how the positive development of these children may be enforced through comparing data acquired from single children, and from children with one or more siblings.
