Census and Statistics Department NG, Siu Yan, BSc in Statistics

For this internship programme, I was assigned to the Science and Technology Section of the Census and Statistics Department (C&SD). This section mainly collects statistics that reflect public technology usage and the status of innovation in Hong Kong.

One of my major tasks was to manage a large database by creating a new user interface in Microsoft Access. To complete this task, I had to learn to use Access VBA and SQL, which were completely new to me. At first, this was quite challenging, as my weakness lies in programming, and I had to learn these languages on my own. However, with the assistance of colleagues, I adapted to the programming work. I was also assigned a research job that involved collecting and summarizing information to serve as a quick reference for survey interviewers during the data collection process. From these tasks, I learned not only new programming skills, but also how the Science and Technology Section processes various surveys.

I also gained a lot of knowledge from my supervisor at CUHK, Professor Fang Xiao. I was required to analyze a dataset on COVID-19 in Hong Kong to estimate and predict the number of daily cases. Although I found this difficult, by following my supervisor’s instructions I was able to complete the task and write a report on the foundations of the data analysis. This helped me to gain a deeper understanding of statistical techniques.The Professional Attachment Programme is generally very good.

This programme offers an ideal opportunity for students who want to gain more working experience and understand the work of the C&SD.
