82% of Singaporeans got a pay rise

Wonder how many Singaporeans got a pay increase or salary rise this year (2011)?
Here is the finding from recruitment consultancy Robert Walters which conducted a global web survey of 3,200 professionals.

More than 82% of the 752 Singaporeans who took the survey in Singapore say they received a wage increase.

Here are more of the findings:

40% of employees saw their wage increase by 1 to 5% 
20% of workers saw their salary increase by 6 to 10%
14% of workers received a salary jump between 11 and 20%
8% of employees got a surging 21% and above pay rise

Reasons for the increase include Singapore's strong economic growth last year and companies trying to retain their best employees by providing with competitive remuneration.
