Abstract: In a comparison of literacy statistics in the 1970 & 1980 censuses, the literacy trend in Singapore is analyzed. There has been substantial growth in general literacy. Concurrently, & more significantly, there has been a distinct trend toward equality in literacy among various ethnic groups & between Ms & Fs. The % of the population with biliterate or multiliterate ability increased tremendously. English & Chinese made parallel growth in literacy. While Malay & Tamil did not make much gain in literacy by population, both have made some progress within the Malay & Indian communities respectively. HA.
