Report: ​Labour Force In Singapore, 2013

Amid the tight labour market, the labour force participation rate rose to a new high in 2013, driven by women and older residents. A record proportion of residents aged 25 to 64 were in employment. Real income growth strengthened, as nominal income gains remained high and inflation eased.

This publication presents a comprehensive range of statistical information on the economic activities of the population, including detailed analysis and data on employment and unemployment as well as characteristics of persons in and outside the labour force. It also examines a wide range of topics including income, training, term contract employment, hours worked and modes of job search.
