Dear Ms Teo

I refer to your point “As we do not differentiate between new citizens and other Singaporeans with regards to fertility data”. One of the concerns of our government is the low TFR of Singaporeans which our immigration policy seeks to address.

If new citizens are not producing babies above the current TFR, they will definitely contribute to an increasing pool of elderly Singaporeans in the near future. (depending on their age profile)

Doesn’t it therefore require the NPTD to have such data?

Please reply.

Regards

Phillip Ang

Dear Mr Ang,

I refer to your email on 24 April 2013.

You may wish to refer to p18, Chart 11 in our Population in Brief publication for information on the number of Singapore citizenships granted from 2007 to 2011.

As we do not differentiate between new citizens and other Singaporeans with regards to fertility data, we regret that we are unable to provide a response to your second query.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us.

Yours Sincerely,

Teo Yea Shi (Ms)

Executive (Corporate Communications)
