THE public can now access key Singapore official statistics while on the go.
On Tuesday, the Department of Statistics (DOS) launched the SingStat mobile application. The move is part of efforts to make data more accessible to the public.
Jointly developed by DOS and the InfoComm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), the SingStat application is meant to provide users easy access to key official statistics in the form of some 200 charts from 25 data categories.
They include gross domestic product, population, prices, labour, manufacturing, services and international trade.
DOS said its users can also customise the viewing of the statistics to display information of their choice, such as by data frequency and presentation of data.
The mobile application uses the Agile development approach, which adopts adaptive planning that allows for rapid prototyping and continual improvements based on user feedback to enhance user experience.
Members of the public can download the free SingStat mobile application via the Apple App Store or Google Play.
