SingStat API

SingStat (Singapore Department of Statistics) has made quite some data publicly available but not in the most analyst-friendly format. For those who are looking for more Singapore-related data to analyze, we can make use of the API function to call these data tables into Python/ pandas dataframe. The example below is on Annual Population: M810381 - Residents By Age Group & Type Of Dwelling, Annual.
