Singapore has the highest number of interfaith couples in the world, according to a new report by the United Nations Population Fund.
The country is home to some of the world’s oldest marriages and is one of the most liberal societies in the Western world.
The report shows that there are more than 500 interfaith partnerships in the country.
The number of marriages between two or more faiths has also been rising.
There were just under 7.7 million such partnerships in 2010, up from 6.7-million in 1990.
The total number of interfaith couples in Singapore is now around 3.3 million, up 25 per cent since 2009.
But, intermarriage rates are still high, according the report.
The annual growth rate of intermarriage among Singaporean citizens is 0.3 per cent, which is a far cry from the 1.3-per-cent average growth rate for the rest of the population.
According to the report, intermarried couples account for just over 1 per cent of Singapore’s population.
In 2016, there were 2,078,000 marriages between Muslims and non-Muslims.
Singapore has a Muslim majority population of more than 90 per cent.
The average annual income of a Muslim family is about S$7,500 ($1,800), while that of non-Muslim families is less than S$2,000.
However, the proportion of non Muslim couples who are intermarried is much higher.
The proportion of Muslim couples in marriages in Singapore in 2016 was 3.9 per cent compared with 2.9 percent among all the non-religious couples in that year.
That’s higher than any other country except Israel, where the proportion was 0.6 per cent in 2016.
While there is no official data on intermarriage patterns, research suggests that it is a factor in the rising number of suicides among Singaporeans.
For example, research conducted by the University of Sydney found that, between 2006 and 2016, the suicide rate among Singapore’s Muslim population was double that of the rest.
That rate rose by 5.4 per cent between 2006-2007 and doubled between 2009-2010.
Singapore is one the world leaders in the number of people dying in suicide attempts.
In 2014, there was more than 6,700 such deaths.
In 2017, there are already over 8,400 deaths.
The rise in suicide rates has been attributed to the government’s aggressive anti-suicide campaigns.
The government has also cracked down on the number and types of drugs and alcohol that are available in Singapore, which are linked to increased rates of suicidal ideation and behaviour.
Some people are also finding it harder to find employment due to the crackdown on the illegal drugs trade.
The survey also showed that Singaporeans are still relatively poor and that the country’s middle class is smaller than the US, Australia or Canada.
It also found that Singapore is the least socially progressive country in the World.
