Singapore 2009 Population

Singapore’s population hit almost 4.99 million in June 2009.
The growth has been fuelled mainly by the increase in immigrants, as the number of babies delivered by Singapore residents rose only marginally.

The Department of Statistics show that the number of citizens grew from 3.16 million last year to 3.2 million this year, while that of permanent residents inched up from 0.48 million to 0.53 million in 2009. The number of non-residents rose by 4.8 % to reach 1.25 million.
