Population

Singapore’s population estimates are compiled using the register-based approach since the Census of Population 2000, where the basic count and profile of the population are based on a person’s place of usual residence i.e. de jure concept. The total population comprises Singapore residents (i.e. Singapore citizens and permanent residents) and non-residents. From 2003 onwards, Singapore residents who were away for a continuous period of 12 months or longer were excluded.

Before the register-based approach was adopted, population estimates were compiled from population censuses. In the 1990 and earlier censuses, the population comprised residents who were present and enumerated in Singapore on Census Day. Residents who were away for short periods of time during the census, as well as non-residents staying or working in Singapore were also included.

Total Population * Total population comprises S'pore residents & non-residents. Resident population comprises S'pore citizens & permanent residents. Data prior to 1990 are based on de facto concept (i.e. the person is present in the country at the reference period), while data from 1990 onwards are based on de jure concept (i.e. the person's place of usual residence). Data from 2003 onwards exclude residents who are overseas for a continuous period of 12 months or longer as at the reference period.

Data for 1990 and earlier are computed using population estimates based on de facto concept (i.e. the person is present in the country at the reference period), while data from 1991 onwards are based on de jure concept (i.e. the person's place of usual residence). Figure for 2003 is computed based on the 2003 unrevised population which include residents who are overseas for a continuous period of 12 months or longer as at the reference period.
