 Calculations are based primarily on the organizations’ 2019 or 2019/20 financial statements, and only the income and expenditure of social services provided in Hong Kong by the organizations are included. If an organization does not mainly provide social services in Hong Kong, and its financial statement does not provide data by region, then its income and expenditure are not included.
 The sum of various sources of revenue may vary slightly from the total annual income due to rounding. Calculations are based primarily on organization's 2019 or 2019/20 annual report. The income and expenditure arising from the operation of primary and secondary schools, hospitals, historical and cultural venues, public services, subsidized housing, hotels and guesthouses, properties and overseas services are excluded.
 This data includes revenue generated from shops operated by organizations.
 This is a projection based on the Social Welfare Department's 2019/20 subventions for various services and the distribution of services by organization.
Organizations are divided into 5 expenditure groups according to their total expenditures. For each expenditure group, an average administrative expenses ratio is calculated using figures of the organizations in the group. The range of administrative expenses ratio is the range of such ratios of these 5 expenditure groups.
