The data for this study are drawn from the data collected for a larger project entitled “A Systematic Study of Labour Dynamics in the Greater Bay Area” funded by Our Hong Kong Foundation. 

This specific data set looks at the labour migration of highly educated Mainland Chinese in Hong Kong with the data collected between fall of 2019 to spring of 2020 with 3,012 respondents. My research draws from this data set and examine the social integration of these migrants, in particular i) whether discrimination at work and in daily life has different influences in their friendship making patterns with locals and ii) the impact of mental health on staying intention when they perceive discrimination. This data set serves as a foundation to understanding the highly educated Mainland Chinese migrant population in Hong Kong and enriches our understanding of highly educated migration within Asia. 

Stata 14.0 was used to analyse the data.
