The understated truth about Hong Kong.

貧窮線將於本月28日在扶貧委員會高𥧌會公佈,屆時政府會首次確定全港貧窮人口,預計約有129萬人生活於貧窮線之下。但在扣除稅及福利轉移後,即把生果金、學童書簿津貼等紓困措施,以及公屋租金補貼等計算在內,貧窮人口將由129萬大幅降低至68萬。有委員認為,政府應以129萬貧窮人口,作制訂扶貧政策的基準。

扶貧委員會高𥧌會將同時公佈2012年本港最新的貧窮數據,扶貧委員會主席林鄭月娥早前已表明數據與前年相若。政府經濟顧問上月26日向扶委會匯報2011年全港貧窮情況,並分析了統計處數據。據了解,經濟顧問列出了三個主要的貧窮人口數據。首先是按貧窮線定義,即住戶收入低於全港住戶入息中位數五成作計算,2011年全港貧窮人口有129萬人,平均每5.6名港人就有一個窮人。
其次是將稅項、一次性紓困措施及其他扶貧政策等現金轉移計算在內,包括鼓勵就業交通津貼、電費補貼等,貧窮人口將減少至101萬。至於公屋補貼,經濟顧問則按差餉物業估價署的公屋市值租金,再計算住戶實際繳交租金的差額,作為政府補貼額,全港貧窮人口則會因而大幅降低至68萬,較129萬減少近半。
按統計處今年首季數據,一個三人家庭的每月入息中位數五成是1.25萬元,4人家庭則約1.54萬元。楊太一家三口居於天水圍公屋,家庭月入約1.2萬元,低於貧窮線;但若將去年電費補貼1,800元、公屋免租兩個月及租金差額補貼、兒子全額書簿津貼3,360元等計算在內,則有機會被剔出貧窮人口。

增補貼拉高公屋戶收入
據了解,目前扶委會委員對公屋補貼的計算方法仍有異議。有委員認為,應以過去10年公屋平均市值租金計算,才能反映租金變化及實際補貼額;也有意見認為,近年私樓租金狂升,不斷擴大公屋補貼額,變相拉高公屋住戶收入,應參考外國「封頂」做法,以家庭入息三成作為可承擔租金的上限。
由於公屋補貼的計算方法未有共識,據悉政府暫只作參考數據,且公佈扶貧線後暫不訂定減貧目標,林鄭月娥也表明不會即時推出政策。有委員認為應以129萬貧窮人口作制訂扶貧政策基準。
雖然數據反映公屋是有效的扶貧措施,但由於建屋需時及數量不多。

CoP high 𥧌 would also announced in 2012 the latest data on poverty in Hong Kong , Mrs Carrie Lam, Chairman of the Commission on Poverty data previously showed comparable with the previous year . Government economic adviser on 26 May 2011 to help the Authority to report the poverty situation in Hong Kong , and analyzes and Statistics Department . It is understood that economic adviser lists three main poverty data . The first is defined by the poverty line , that household income is below the median income for all households as calculated five percent , in 2011 the population of 129 million people in poverty in Hong Kong , Hong Kong people have an average of one every 5.6 poor .
Followed by the tax , one-off relief measures and other pro-poor policies and other cash transfers are included, including WITS , electricity subsidies , poverty will be reduced to 1,010,000 . As for public housing subsidies, economic adviser press RVD market rents for public housing , and then calculate the difference between households actually pay rent , as a government subsidy , there is thus significantly reducing poverty to 680,000 , compared with 129 Wan dropped by almost half .
The first quarter of this year, according to Statistics Department data , a three- monthly household median income is 12,500 yuan five percent , four -person households is approximately 1.54 million. Young family of three living in Tin Shui Wai housing too , household monthly income of about 12,000 yuan , below the poverty line ; However, if the electricity subsidy of $ 1,800 last year , two months rent-free housing and rental subsidies for the difference , the son of a full 3,360 yuan, and Textbook Assistance counted , then have the opportunity to be released from poverty .

Increase household income housing subsidies pulled
It is understood that the current committee members supporting the calculation of public housing subsidies still disagrees . Some members believe that the past 10 years should average market rental housing , in order to reflect changes in rents and the actual amount of subsidy ; also the view that , in recent years, spiraling rents private buildings , expanding the housing subsidy in disguise pulled income tenants should refer to the foreign “ceiling ” practices to three percent as household income can afford the rent ceiling.
Since the calculation of public housing subsidies no consensus , the government temporarily reported data for reference only , and the poverty line after publication temporarily set poverty reduction targets , Mrs Lam also shows no immediate release policy . Some members believe that poor people should be 1,290,000 basis for formulating pro-poor policies .
Although the data reflects the housing is effective poverty reduction measures, but the time required for housing and small quantities.
