SINGAPORE CHRONICLES: DEMOGRAPHY
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press are jointly launching the Singapore Chronicles series in 2015. This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. Covering a wide range of subjects, from the hilosophical to the mundane, the fundamental to the practical, these Singapore Chronicles titles include Constitution, Presidency, Housing, Transport, Demography, CPF, Sports and Food. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject. Written by leading experts, they will focus on key aspects of the subject, providing analysis as well as an historical account. Readers will gain an insight into what makes Singapore tick and also why it has chosen certain “paths un-trodden”.

DEMOGRAPHY

Singapore’s population is a veritable mix of nationalities, ethnic groups, languages and religious affiliations. Its unique trajectory of size and composition is mapped out by various phases of migration. There also has been a demographic transition from high birth and death rates in the post-World War II years to the very low birth and death rates today. This book traces the trends and developments in Singapore’s population from the pre-Independence period, when there was relatively little control over migration and fertility; through the period of population control from Independence to the 1980s; to the more expansionary years from the mid-1980s until recently.
