1) Interview Video from the Corresponding Author
We asked the following three questions to the collaborative researchers from eight countries/regions of Asia participating in this CRNA Collaborative Research:
Q1 Why did you decide to participate in this international collaborative survey project? Q2 Why did you focus on the topic (the topic of your choice) in your country report? Q3 What do you think is the most essential issue/point from your analysis?
Singapore is a city-state with a total population of 5.45 million, of which 3.99 million are
residents (i.e., citizens and permanent residents); and its resident unemployment rate was
relatively low at 3.5%, as at end December 2021 (Ministry of Manpower, 2022). The infant
mortality rate is also comparatively low at 1.8 per 1000 live births but the nation's total fertility
rate has fallen steadily over the last decade to 1.12 births per female (Department of
Statistics Singapore, 2021a). The average size of resident households is 3.22 persons and
78.7% of the resident population live in subsidised public housing (also known as "Housing
Development Board/HDB dwellings") and such flat ownership is high at 87.9% (Department
of Statistics Singapore, 2021b).
