Note: (1) The definition on children's playground has been revised.  Figure in 2016/17 and 2017/18 reflects "the number of venues provided with children's playground" instead of "the number of children's play area".  A venue with more than one children's play area will only be counted once.
  (2) Rescue cases refer to cases in which a swimmer gets into trouble in the water and rescue operation is required (including those in which the swimmer needs or needs not to be delivered to hospital).
  (3) The classification of drowning cases is based on the direct cause of death determined by the Forensic Pathologist.
