Abstract

According to the results of the 2015 Hong Kong Children’s Happiness Index Survey released by Lingnan University’s Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS) today (30 March), the overall Children’s Happiness Index in 2015 dropped noticeably to 6.49 (on a scale of 0 to 10) from 6.74 in 2014.

With funding support from the Hong Kong Early Childhood Development Research Foundation and the assistance of the Public Governance Programme of Lingnan University, the 2015 Children’s Happiness Index survey was conducted following the same methodology as in previous surveys. A total of 9 primary schools and 14 secondary schools (excluding international schools) participated in the survey, involving 1,146 Primary 4 to Secondary 3 students (comprising 428 primary and 718 secondary school students) and 1,509 parents.

嶺南大學(嶺大)公共政策研究中心於今日(3月30日)公布「2015年香港兒童快樂指數調查」結果,顯示香港兒童的整體快樂指數由2014年的6.74(以0-10分計算),顯著下跌至2015年的6.49。

2015年香港兒童快樂指數調查由香港嬰幼兒發展研究基金會贊助,並由嶺南大學公共管治計劃協助進行,採用與往年調查相同的研究方法。共有9所小學和14所中學(國際學校除外)參與調查,並成功收回1,146名就讀小四至中三的學童(包括428名小學及718名中學學生),以及1,509名家長回答的問卷。
