In Singapore, the unemployment rate measures the number of people actively looking for a job as a percentage of the labour force.

Latest Updates

Singapore’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate inched higher to 2.3 percent in the September quarter 2019 from 2.2 percent in the previous period and in line with the preliminary estimate. This was the highest jobless rate since the fourth quarter 2009, as more workers were retrenched while hiring sentiments remained cautious, with the number of job vacancies continuing to fall.
