Cost of living a major worry for young Singaporeans

The rising cost of living in Singapore, one of the world’s richest countries, is a major concern for the young population, a survey conducted by Singapore Polytechnic has found.

In the last three weeks of June the Mass Media Research survey interviewed 825 people between the ages of 15-35 living in Singapore, and found that nearly 100 percent said financial stability was among their top three aspirations, along with strong family relationships and work-life balance.

Nearly all participants also said they hoped to see Singapore as an affordable place to live in five years’ time.

Singapore was recently ranked as the world’s seventh most expensive city in Expatistan’s Cost of Living index, while its property market is among the world’s top ten most expensive, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers.
