Over-education has been a public issue among developed economies since decades ago; Hong Kong is not alone. However, research in the situation of over-education in Hong Kong is rarely found, if any.

We are conducting a study to estimate the situation of over-education in Hong Kong, to estimate its economic cost, and to explore its social cost.

Please spare some time to answer the questions in the questionnaire. The information you provide will be strictly confidential and be used for this research only.

Thank you!
