Survey: Fewer young Singaporeans think of emigrating

A 2016 survey by the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) at NUS interviewed more than 2,000 local 19- to 30-year-olds and discovered that fewer were thinking of emigrating permanently. The findings showed 18.3 per cent had thought about emigrating, down from 21.2 per cent in 2010, while 59.3 per cent said that they could achieve the things they want in Singapore without having to leave, up from 45.6 per cent in 2010.
