The report contains detailed and specific information on the population of churches in geographic regions of the greater Hong Kong area, information about specific populations broken down by denomination, and comparative information on the growth and/or decline of each congregation's population and financial health since the previous report published in 1958 and the initial report conducted in 1955. Also included is a Chinese/English glossary.
