This annotated bibliography aims to help library users identify relevant publications held in the NUS Library and relevant Web sites containing statistical data on Singapore for the period 1965 onwards.

The statistical publications are arranged by broad subject categories with annotations based on the latest issue held in the Library at the time of compilation. Only materials containing largely quantitative statistical data are listed while materials with largely qualitative data are excluded. Although the time period covered is from 1965 onwards, some publications containing historical data are included for easy reference.
