From the spreadsheet we downloaded from the Department of Statistics, we found out from the tables, which provide statistics for Resident Households by Monthly Household Income from Work, 2003 to 2013 by the percentage of people in the different income zones. Resident households refer to households headed by Singapore Citizens or permanent residents. Household income from work includes employer CPF contributions. We will only be comparing 2010-2011, 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 increase/decrease in income, and the difference within 3 ranges: Low income, Average income and High income.

For the Low income range, it includes No Working Person, ‘Retiree’ Households(*solely non-working persons aged 60 years and over), Below $1000, $1000-$1999, $2000-$2999, which are just the range of household income.

For the Average income range, it ranges from $3000-$3999, $4000-$4999 and $5000-$5999.

Last but not least, the High income range includes $6000-$6999, $7000-$7999, $8000-$8999, $9000-$9999, $10000-$10999, $11000-$11999, $12000-$12999, $13000-$13999, $14000-$14999, $15000-$17499, $17500-$19999 and $20000 & over.

Through careful analysis, we noticed a trend.
