AbstractIn this article a component method is used to examine the effects of migration on population projection in Hong Kong. We assume no migration and use the reported fertility and mortality patterns to simulate the population distribution for the period 1998-2016 It is shown that the ageing phenomenon would be serious if there was no migration. In 1996, the elderly dependency ratio would have been 153 per 1,000 population aged between 15 and 64, as compaied with 141 as observed. Similarly, the elderly dependency ratio in 2016 would be 216 as projected instead of 184 estimated on the basis of existing immigration policy. The median age was estimated to be 45 years of age. Possible effects of ageing are discussed.
