The Global AgeWatch Index developed by HelpAge International is a multi-dimensional index assessing the social and economic well-being of older people in over 90 countries / territories. Based on its methodology, the Jockey Club Institute of Ageing of The Chinese University of Hong Kong has compiled the "AgeWatch Index for Hong Kong" since 2014, and subsequently extended to "Hong Kong Elder Quality of Life Index" to assess the elderly well-being in a comprehensive manner with locally significant indicators. The Index provides a trend analysis of the well-being outcomes of older people in four important domains: Income Security, Health Status, Capability, and Enabling Environment, which facilitates policy planning to improve the quality of life of elderly people, and measures the progress of local age-friendly interventions responding to ageing.

The Index reports have been publicised annually for six consecutive years. Topical reports on the four domains are also produced. The report findings can serve as a useful reference to formulate age-friendly initiatives and policies in Hong Kong.
