In the wake of the economic downturn, it has been reported that help would now be given not just to the low (income) class but also the middle class (specifically, the low-middle class). In the same report, the low (income) class was defined as a family with a total household income of $1500 and below, while the low-middle class was defined as those with a total household income of $1501-$2500.

Not too long ago, during the foreign-workers-domitory-in-Serangoon-Gardens saga, it was reported that those staying in the landed properties in Serangoon Gardens were middle class.

Any one here knows how are households classified in Singapore in terms of income/class? I'm confused... lipsrsealed.gif

Not sure if you can classfiy them as "middle-middle" class and maybe 8k-10k is considered as " high-middle" class.

$1500 and above - middle class

above the above and above - elite class

Why do they even bother to 'classify' households in the first place... opens door for social classification AND is ambiguous.

Should just state that for what income range and such.... that way, everyone can be clear (or at least, clearer)

Lowest 5% earner - low class
Highest 5% earner - high class

HDB use 8k as the cap on the egliability to purchase a HDB flat. Maybe 8k can be use as a benchmark for the classes criteria.

What do you say?
