Singapore Population and PR Counts

Postby Strong Eagle » Thu, 30 Jul 2015 11:53 pm

I answered Barnsley's question in the "Thumb Rule for PR Application Thread" and decided to split it out.

Barnsley wrote:

Good luck with that.....

Didnt they say "its not good for the citizens to know how many PR's there actually are" or something like that.

I will look for the quote and add :D

It's a bit dated but a useful graphic:

Population allegedly at 5.47 million in 2014 if you dig through the website.

An interesting table at Wikipedia:

Straight from the horse's mouth: ... f-2014.pdf

So... I reckon the government is transparent about these things.

The graphic on page 5 of the report is quite interesting in that it shows the breakdown of pass holders... quite close to what I had heard a few years ago... about 160,000 EP's, somewhat less for S-Pass.

Half of all the marriages happens between residents and non-residents. Interesting.
Also with the fertility rates even more in decline the population of the true-blues must be shrinking rapidly.

I'd like the see the demographic breakdown of the local/non-local marriages. That might be even more telling. e.g., what are the predominant nationalities that are using the side door for entry here.
