Singapore population, citizens, permanent residents, non-residents



Have you ever wondered what is the population of Singapore, how many of the people leaving are citizens, permanent residents or non-residents? How the population and the mix of the population have changed over years? Below is a table showing the numbers by years.

The first "Total" in the table is the total population, residents (citizens and PRs) plus non-residents. The second "Total" column is the total number of residents, citizens and PRs.

By 2010, citizens are 63 percent of total Singapore population while PRs form 10% and non-residents form 25 percent.

The source is "Monthly Digest of Statistics Singapore February 2011" from Department of Statistics Singapore.
