Abstract: This study aims to examine the housing situation for single parent households in Singapore. The focus on those households with single adults aged between 20 to 34 years, who are not specifically catered to by current public housing policies. The study first examined the general demographic trends in Singapore, and discussed the size and characteristics of the households under the stated category. The detailed study which followed is supplemented with in-depth interviews and case studies, and this helped to uncover the housing needs, specific housing requirements (in terms of housing types, size, etc) and financial affordability of these households. The ensuing discussion considered how these are addressed under current housing regulations and the subject of residential autonomy was discussed based on the views and concerns expressed by respondents in the study. The study further undertook an examination of existing housing policies and their implications on these single parent households. The study highlighted the particular problems and issues faced by a hitherto marginalized group in Singapore. It highlighted specific concerns and brought out useful insights that would be relevant to policy makers, particularly in the light of the publicly announced policy objective to make Singapore a more inclusive and cohesive society in the future.
