Hong Kong: House price to income ratio

The house price to income ratio is the ratio of the cost of a typical upscale housing unit of 100 square metres, compared to the countrys GDP per capita. Normally this ratio will be much higher in low income countries than in high income countries.

The formula is: (Price per square metre / GDP per capita)*100. The house price to income ratios published by the Global Property Guide are based on the Global Property Guides own proprietary in-house research, but we use the IMFs GDP per capita figures.


Hong Kong has good quality housing statistics. The Ratings and Valuation Department releases monthly Hong Kong Property Review which has data on house prices, rent, yield, completion, forecast completion and sales transactions. Excellent economics data are available from the Hong Kong Census and Statistics Department.
