Release Information

Our national source, the Singapore Department of Statistics, reports (the fundamentals) average earnings per employee and total (i.e., aggregate) employment, quarterly, on a not seasonally adjusted (NSA) basis, but not total earnings. The data is based on SSIC 2010 which is the most recent industrial classification followed by the Department of Statistics.

Average monthly earnings (AME) are compiled based on administrative records of the payroll of Central Provident Fund (CPF) contributors. The data include all full-time and part-time employees who have contributed to CPF but exclude all identifiable self-employed persons who have made voluntary CPF contributions.

Data is revised when new data becomes available.
