To track the changes of the current situation on the use of language of the people of Hong Kong in different contexts, in particular, at home, at work and during their daily exposure to the media, Thematic Household Survey was conducted in 2012 and 2015. Thematic Household Survey 2018 is underway.

Another study, namely, the Gap Analysis Study, is also underway with an aim to identify the gaps, if any, in the requirements/expectations of the employers of Hong Kong on English language competencies of their employees and the perceived and actual English language competencies of the local employees.
