Attitudes towards Institutions, Politics, and Policies: Key Findings from the World Value Survey in Singapore

Attitudes towards Institutions, Politics, and Policies analyses the responses of 2,012 Singapore participants for WVS 2020. Comparisons across WVS participant countries and iterations are presented where appropriate to allow for the tracking of shifting or sustaining values across time and space. In general, the survey sample is nationally representative, as the dataset was weighted to mirror the age, gender, and race demographics of the adult resident population in Singapore.

Since its independence in 1965, Singapore's transformation from mediocrity to a world leader by various socio-economic metrics is often attributed to its resolute, pragmatist political leadership. However, the role of its citizens should not be underestimated too; their trust, compliance and support of public institutions and policies are integral to the continued success of the city-state. 

Against this backdrop, this report, titled Attitudes towards Institutions, Politics, and Policies, is the second of a three-part series presenting the salient findings from the latest 2020 instalment of the World Values Survey (WVS). WVS is the largest non-commercial, cross-national, and time-series survey of public attitudes and values globally. Spanning 80 countries and currently in its seventh iteration, WVS seeks to study individuals' changing values across polities and their impact on social and political life.

Attitudes towards Institutions, Politics, and Policies analyses the responses of 2,012 Singapore participants for WVS 2020. Comparisons across WVS participant countries and iterations are presented where appropriate to allow for the tracking of shifting or sustaining values across time and space. In general, the survey sample is nationally representative, as the dataset was weighted to mirror the age, gender, and race demographics of the adult resident population in Singapore.

The following is a succinct rundown of the key findings spanning four key areas: A) public confidence or trust in our institutions, B) political attitudes, C) attitudes towards government surveillance, and D) attitudes towards immigration.
