In an Our Singapore Conversation survey report of over 4000 Singaporeans, it was found that while there is a great deal of social consensus, there are still a few issues which see a big split in views.

The survey also revealed that there are a number of issues which split the population along age, education and income lines.

For example, on the issue of censorship, it was found that in general, younger Singaporeans wanted less censorship while the older generation tended to value censorship more as it could protect public interests.

A similar trend was seen on the homosexuality issue with more young people accepting of a gay lifestyle compared to older Singaporeans.

It was found that 62% of less educated Singaporeans rejected the idea of gay lifestyles while only 26-29% of poly and Uni grads felt this way.

Singaporeans from different income groups also saw different views on the issue of social support.

54% of those surveyed earning less than $1k said that the overnment should do more to provide for Singaporeans. On the other hand, only 30% of Singaporeans earning more than $10k said the same.

Similarly, more people aged 50 and over felt that the government should do more compared to younger Singaporeans aged 15-19.

On a positive note, there was a general willingness on the part of more wealthy Singaporeans (earning over $7k and living in private properties) to pay more tax if it was in order to support the lower-income earners.

Summing up the findings, Associate Professor Tan Ern Ser of the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) said that this survey helps to show that there are some issues that encounter a dilemma on how to move forward.

He also said that he hoped these findings are important to create a better appreciation for the diversity of views held by Singaporeans.
