NUS poll gets interesting replies from Singaporeans on perceived class status

A study commissioned by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at NUS titled "Cars, Condos and Cai Png: Singaporeans’ Perceptions of Class, Wealth and Status", found that Singaporeans believed that what sets the “high class” and “low class” populations apart are their jobs and income, housing and education levels, as well as whether they consume brands that are associated with either classes. A few also identified language as a signpost of class status.
