Chart of the day: Singaporean residents are getting older

The median age for most residents is 42 years old.

This chart from the Singapore Statistics Department shows the age distribution of the resident population.

At the end of June 2022, the median age of Singapore residents was at 42.1 years, up from 41.8 years in the previous year. This is also a significant increase from 37.4 years in 2010 and 34 years in 2000.

The chart also shows that the proportion of residents aged 65 years and over increased, from 16% in 2021 to 16.6% in 2022.

The resident population grew by 2.2 per cent from 2021 to 4.07 million as of end-June 2022. Within the resident population, citizens grew by 1.6 per cent to 3.55 million while permanent residents grew by 6.3 per cent to 0.52 million.

The growth in the resident population could be largely attributed to the easing of travel restrictions due to COVID-19, as more citizens and PRs who were previously overseas continuously for 12 months or more returned to Singapore. The non-resident population grew by 6.6 per cent to 1.56 million over the same period but was still lower than the pre-COVID level of 1.68 million as of end-June 2019.
