According to the latest statistic by the Ministry of Manpower…
We can derive 2% of 5183700 total population is 103674, however the total of the unemployed Singaporeans and PRs at 113676 have already exceeded this number.
Singaporean = 3.2%, or 104230 out of 3257200 Singaporeans are unemployed
Permanent Residents = 1.775%, or 9446 out of 532000 PRs are unemployed
Foreigners = -0.717%, or -10002 out of 1394500 Foreigners are unemployed
Interestingly, there are only about 1190000 foreign workers in Singapore reported by MOM. Has Singapore’s real population number been under-reported or is Singapore’s unemployment figure just yet another propaganda attempt by the PAP Government?
Wiki Temasek is currently seeking the Ministry of Manpower’s clarification over the discrepancy.
