  1. I think that the figures will help working people to know if it is a good time to look for a job and if Singapore is progressing and if the economy is good. To see if the population is getting academically smarter, if there is a better educational system. And also how rich people are in comparison to themselves.

  2. I think that the figures/results will help jobless or people looking for new jobs to know when the time is right to find a new job, if that job will affect their economic/Singapore economic. it is also good for people-parents/teachers/ministries to see if Singapore's children's academics are improving or deproving this will help them to try to create programmes/change the educational system to help "us". It is also to see if the Singapore Population is over the edge- Singapore may/may not be over populated.;

  3. The data collected can be used for reference and educational purposes . The citizens of Singapore can know what thing they should continue doing that would benefit the country and what they should not do that will harm the country.

  4. I think that the figures will help citizens in Singapore to monitor the market and what is the trend of the figures. They can observe the chart and decide when is the right time to invest . These graphs can present the data neatly for the government to analysis improvements and amendments to the education system , market , tourism and populations.

  5. The data collected can help Singaporeans decide when to invest as there are statistics on economy. Also, Singaporeans can decide whether to innovate as this information can help them innovate.

  6. I think that these data and information collected will be able to help Singaporeans to know when the economy is good, and when they should consider looking for a job. Or, they could also use the data collected to know when the economy is doing well, so that they can know when they should invest.

  8. I think that the information will help the government make decisions to serve the people better. For example, if the Literacy rate is decreasing, they will probably build more schools or try to improve the education system.

  9. I think the data collected will help Singaporean's know the state of the economy. It will also tell them if it is a good time to apply for a job or invest in shares by showing them the trend of the figures of the market.

  10. I think the data collected can help Singapore know and monitor our money, market, jobs and economy's current status. It can also provide us with the flow and pattern of these statuses. It can also help to 'predict' the future of Singapore and help make the necessary arrangements, changes and improvements.

    It will allow the Singapore government to keep track of the country's economy, population, housing, etc. If anything needs adjustment such as more housing are needed, the government can automatically be alerted and can build more buildings to take care of the needs of Singapore citizens.

  12. Data collected will be able to help jobless people to find jobs and also keep the government in tabs of singapore's economy. So, they would be able to adjust and take care of everything more easily.

  13. The data can help the people which do not live in Singapore to know if jobs are common in Singapore. If it is low, the government would create more companies to help to provide jobs.

  14. I think it will allow Singaporeans to check their growth and improve on the weaker areas. It also helps the ministers or people in charge to do up plans for a better Singapore. (EG. Jobs for jobless people,ways of doing up different financial/educational schemes for more effective support and studies. The data also helps people from other countries to decide whether to migrate to Singapore or investors to invest on Singapore products.

  15. I think it will allow the people to know about their economic development. Hence, they can know if they can have more opportunities here.

  16. I think it will enable people who do not have jobs get to know when there is an opportunity for them to find jobs and the data will also enable the government to know of Singapore's economy,whether it is good or bad,and provide ways to improve the situation.

    It will allow people to see the market changes, so when that they will be able to know when the opportunity would be good to get a job if they are jobless. It will also let companies know when to produce more or less of a certain product, depending on the demands of the market

  18. I think it will allow people to know whether if its wise to join the educational industry like producing textbooks, giving tuition etc. etc., it will also make people more aware of their internal affairs and it will help the government to make some useful changes in the country.

  19. I think that statistics can help Singapore Enterprises to judge how they are going to run their business;like the market they want to research on,how the other competitors fare in the field and other info which can only be found in the Department of Stats

  20. I think that the statistics will allow people to understand more clearly of what the economy is like so they can make the right choice in the market or finding a job,it may also show a kind of pattern so that the government can act on it.

  21. Statistics will give Singaporeans a clearer understanding of the economy, current trends and what kind of jobs they should choose. It will also enable the government to alter the times of work, school or other industries

  22. Statistics can help the different ministries of Singapore know where do they have to improve on. It can also help Singaporeans to know where they can find job opportunities, and whether if their current job is "safe to stay".
