There are two main population trends:
In the last two decades, total Singapore population increased from around 3 million in 1990 to 5.3 million in 2012.
By 2030 we will have a projected population of 6.9 million.
In 1980, Singapore residents comprised 94.5 percent of the population.
This is projected to be 63.7 percent by 2030.
In 1990, the median age for Singapore residents was 29.8 years. In 2012, that number jumped to 38.4 years.
Different districts in Singapore have different age dynamics.
Some feel relatively young. Others have greyed rapidly.
