Estimated population of Singapore
citizens and permanent residents - 3,163,500 as at June 1998.
Other ethnic groups 1.4%
Working Language: English
Other official languages: Mandarin,
Malay & Tamil.
Planners expect the
population of Singapore to reach 5.5 million by 2040 or 2050, taking
into account an expected increase in the number of foreigners working
here. From just 3 million in 1990, the number has swelled to 3.9 million
today, including 700 000 foreigners.
A high-level working
committee is now looking at ways to encourage more couples to have
babies. Demographer Saw Swee Hock says that if the fertility rate
continues to stay below two, the population here, minus the foreigners,
will peak at about 3.3 million in 2025 and then begin to drop.
Singapore's water is
clean and safe to drink from the tap. There is no need to boil it.

Consumer prices fell by 0.4%
in Jun 2000, as lower costs of transport, communications and clothing
more than offset rises in housing, health and education and stationery.
The consumer price index (CPI) for March 2000
dipped by 0.3% compared to February 2000. Food prices fell by 1.6% due
mainly to cheaper seafood, vegetables and fresh pork. The cost of
transport and communications fell by 0.2% due to falling car prices.
The CPI is used as an inflation gauge by
measuring the change in the prices of a fixed basket of goods purchased
commonly by most households.
The Government has forecast that inflation will
be within 2% this year.
