45.4% of Workers in Singapore Are Foreigners

Two years ago, we estimated that 44% of Singapore’s workforce are non-citizens . Well, we were wrong. The actual figure is 45.4%, a little higher than our estimate! Published in today’s Business Times are the numbers for the breakdown of our labour force as at June 2010: There were 1,712,600 Singaporeans (“citizens”), 334,700 permanent residents (“PRs”) and 1,088,600 foreigners in the labour force as at June 2010. If we group PRs together with foreigners — rightfully so because PRs aren’t citizens if you ask me — there are a total of 1,423,300 non-citizens among the total workforce of 3,135,900 workers. 1423300 / 3135900 = 45.39% So, non-citizen foreigners make up 45.4% of Singapore’s workforce.
