Abstract: The growing affluence of Singaporeans has resulted in them seeking for qualitative fulfillment such as quality housing. Selective En-bloc Redevelopment Scheme (SERS) one of the schemes under the Estate Renewal Scheme by E1DB was introduced in August 1995. SERS sets to relocate residents living in the mature estates with new flats in close proximity to the existing ones. This paper attempts to measure quality of life of SERS upgraders and analyse the differences among respondents with different demographic background. Based on a sample survey of 200 respondents from various SERS affected precincts, it was found that upgraders' quality of life have generally increased from 3.29 (before upgrading) to 3.83 (after upgrading), using a 5-point Likert scale. Respondents rated health and family life as more important than thirteen other aspects of life. Demographic factors however, did not have any impact on the QOL ratings.
