Current Unemployment Rate of Citizens by Wage Decile Based on Last Drawn Salary

Hazel Asks the Manpower Minister

Ms Hazel Poa asked the Minister for Manpower what is the current unemployment rate of citizens by wage decile based on last drawn salary.

Dr Tan See Leng: MOM does not track unemployment rates based on last drawn salary, which can be influenced by several factors such as age, education, hours worked, industry and occupation. Instead, as with the approach taken globally by other national statistical agencies, we track unemployment rates disaggregated by age, gender, education qualifications and occupations. These figures are released on a regular basis through our labour market reports.
