- The method for compiling the re-entry into employment for retrenched workers has been revised to be based on a fixed job search duration of 6 months for residents retrenched in the respective quarters. Previously, the rate was computed based on a variable length of job search of between 3 to 6 months. Please refer to the
Revision To Time Series On The Rate Of Re-Entry Into Employment for the technical details.
- Residents refer to Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents.
- Quarterly re-entry rate measures the proportion of residents who are in employment in the reference quarter, six months after retrenchment.
- Annual re-entry rate measures the proportion of residents who are in employment in the reference year, six months after retrenchment
- Data refer to the proportion of residents retrenched by private sector establishments (each with at least 25 employees) and the public sector, who re-entered employment six months after they were retrenched.
- Retrenched Residents refer to retrenched permanent employees and term contract workers which are terminated prematurely because of redundancy.
- It should be noted that data on re-entry into employment are cohort-specific. Two different cohorts of workers laid off could yield a different re-entry rate depending on the profile of the workers involved. Also, the data based on administrative records do not capture workers who enter into self or informal employment or undergo training while looking for job.
