Did Singaporeans' quality of life improve post-COVID?
Eleven percent of those with multiple dependents rated theirs as “poor.”
A majority of Singaporeans (72%) felt like their quality has improved after the pandemic, a survey from the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) revealed.
Few (28%), however, think their quality of life worsened; this feeling was evident amongst youths aged 15 to 19 (38%).
Compared to the general population, individuals with multiple dependents, including elderly seniors and children in the household, were also more likely to rate their overall quality of life now to be “poor” (11%) or “very poor” (7%).
Respondents in the survey rated their quality of life based on ten key aspects including their ability to cater to their financial needs.
