  • The data on Singapore’s population is for resident population comprising citizens and permanent residents as at end-June 2017. Data from 2003 onwards excludes residents who have been away from Singapore for a continuous period of 12 months or longer as at the reference period.
  • The resident population projections are based on a midpoint of a range of scenarios with resident population as at end-Jun 2015 as the base population. The lower bound scenario assumes TFR of 1.0, immigration rates of 20K SC, 30K PR p.a.; and the upper bound scenario assumes a TFR of 1.5 and immigration rates of 25K SC, 35K PR p.a.
  • In the calculator in Section 1, the data for resident population in the “same age group” refers to those in the same 5 year age-band and “people staying near you” to those in the same planning area. Planning areas refer to areas demarcated in the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s Master Plan 2014.
  • In Section 1, ”aged” countries refer to those with the proportion of seniors aged 65 and above over 14%. “Super-aged” countries refer to those with the proportion of seniors aged 65 and above over 20%. Data for Singapore pertains to resident population.
