Our total population is made up of Singapore citizens, Permanent Residents (PRs) and non-residents. The non-resident population is a diverse group who are here for work, study or family reasons. As of June 2017, the total population size is 5.61 million.
Our total population growth was almost flat in 2017, due to a decline in the non-resident population.
Growth in non-resident population has slowed since 2013. In contrast, citizen population grew at a steady pace through births and immigration, while PR population remained relatively stable.
