NUS Survey: Perceptions of Social Class

A survey concerning Singaporeans' perceptions of economic and social status

This survey is being conducted by researchers as part of a project to find out more about the ways that Singaporeans and Singapore permanent residents perceive social, cultural and economic status.


Our researchers are investigating the "markers" that people use to judge whether others are upper, lower or middle class, the degree to which these markers are linked to wealth and/or income, and the ways in which they have evolved over time. 


We would like to ask you seven short questions about your background and your opinions concerning social and economic status markers. The survey should take around ten minutes to complete. The results will be collated and analysed as part of our research.


All answers are strictly anonymous, and we will not collect any personal data unless you wish to be informed about the survey results once they are published, in which case you will have the option to input your email address at the end of the survey. This is not an obligatory step, and you are free to leave the email box empty.


The data collected will be stored according to NUS data protection principles, and used only within the context of this project. You are free to withdraw your consent to participate at any time. If you withdraw your consent, your answers will not be used in the final analysis.


If you would like to participate, please indicate your consent below.
