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 2016, the total population size is 5.61 million.
Our total population growth has slowed. The total population growth rates remained relatively stable and low across the last three years, due to measures taken to slow foreign workforce growth.
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.
