According to a survey done by Blackbox Corp on government satisfaction levels, Singaporeans are least satisfied with the cost of living in the country, but are happiest with national security and crime levels.

The survey calculated the Government Satisfaction Index (GSI) for November 2019, which was published on Dec 13.

Comparing the results to those of the previous month, management of the economy and population fell by two points. Public transport gained the most this month, with a 6-point increase, followed by level of salaries and wages with a 3-point increase and cost of living, also with a 3-point increase.

The largest decrease in government satisfaction since last month were in population management and management of the economy.
