Notes

  1. Resident households refer to households headed by Singapore citizens or permanent residents. For statistical purposes, a household refers to a group of persons living in the same dwelling unit and sharing common living arrangements. A household may comprise related or unrelated members.
  2. There were 1.2 million resident households in 2014. Out of which, there were 1.07 million households with at least one working person (resident employed households). Hence, each income decile has about 107,000 households.
  3. The proportion of resident households with at least one working person (i.e resident employed households) increased from 90 per cent in 2010 to 91 per cent in 2011.
  4. Household income from work refers to the sum of income received by all working members of the household from employment and business but excludes the income of maids.
  5. Household income from work per household member refers to the household income from work divided by the total number of members in the household. For example, if only one person in a household of four is working, his income is divided by four to derive the average income per household member.
