    The Singapore Yearbook of Manpower Statistics contains a wide range of key statistical information on the labour market. Wherever possible, time-series data from 1996 to 2006 are included. This Yearbook is the 31st edition published by the Manpower Research and Statistics Department of the Ministry of Manpower. Starting from the 25th edition, the publication title has been amended to reflect the year of publication instead of the reference year of the latest available data. We hope this Yearbook will meet the needs of users for up-to-date and comprehensive manpower statistics. The contents and presentation of the Yearbook are reviewed regularly. We welcome readers feedback to help us improve the Yearbook. A detachable Feedback Form is enclosed at the end of the publication for readers use. We wish to thank the various government agencies, statutory boards and private organisations for their contributions to this publication. We are also grateful to those who have offered valuable comments and suggestions to improve the Yearbook. TAN LENG LENG (Mrs) Director Manpower Research and Statistics Department Ministry of Manpower June 2007
