The Center for Applied Social and Economic Research (CASER), Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, was established in December 2009, with a primary mission to promote quantitative analysis of social and economic issues and their impacts on human welfare in both Hong Kong and mainland China. With the support from the RGC-CPU Strategic Public Policy Research (2009-2014), the Center has conducted the Hong Kong Panel Study of Social Dynamics (HK-PSSD), the first household panel survey in Hong Kong SAR.
