NOTICE PAPER NO. 657 OF 2017 FOR THE SITTING ON 03 JULY 2017
QUESTION NO. 483 FOR WRITTEN ANSWER
MP: Mr Patrick Tay Teck Guan
To ask the Minister for Manpower as at 2017, what is the breakdown for Singaporeans and permanent residents who are professionals, managers and executives in Singapore in terms of the 25th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 75th and 80th percentile of the (i) basic monthly salary (including and excluding employer CPF contributions) and (ii) gross monthly salary (including and excluding employer CPF contributions).
- Since 2016, the Ministry has adopted the reporting of occupation data for Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians (PMETs) instead of Professionals, Managers and Executives (PMEs). This is because the two job categories of PME and Associate Professionals and Technicians (APT) will become less distinct in the future economy.
- The breakdown of gross monthly income (including employer CPF contributions) by percentiles as at June 2013 and June 2016, for full time employed residents1 who are PMETs, is provided in Table 1.
- Data on basic monthly income is not available.
