Channel NewsAsia, 25 Nov 2014

The Department of Statistics (DOS) has on Tuesday (Nov 25) launched a new app, SingStat, to make some national data more easily accessible to the public.

The app provides access to key official statistics in the form of close to 200 charts from 25 data categories, such as health, climate and air quality, gross domestic product, population, prices, labour, manufacturing, services and international trade, DOS said in a release. The app allows users to customise how they view the data.

DOS said that to enhance the user experience, the app adopts adaptive planning that allows for rapid prototyping and continual improvements based on user feedback.

The app was jointly developed by DOS and the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), and is now available via the Apple App Store and Google Play.
