As Singapore's Death Rate Drops More, Teck Hin Undertaker Supports Those in Need

Latest figures from Department of Statistics put age-standardized annual death rate for adults at record-low 3.0 per 1,000 residents, Teck Hin Undertaker reports

Singapore has made many impressive kinds of progress through the half-century since its independence. Alongside the economic feats that so often attract attention have come many important strides regarding quality of life. Perhaps most impressive of all is the way that adult mortality has fallen so drastically over the last fifty-plus years. With Singapore's age-standardized death rate recently setting a new record low, according to the Department of Statistics, Teck Hin Undertaker helps sensitively celebrate the steadily lengthening lives of residents after they come to an end. Respecting each departed person's beliefs, achievements, and character, the company's services and arrangements bring peace and comfort to those remaining behind.

"The latest figures from the Department of Statistics put Singapore's age-standardized death rate at a record-low 3.0 per 1,000 residents," said Teck Hin Undertaker representative Esther Yang, "That represents impressive progress over even just the seven short years since the 2010 Lancet study that highlighted a rate of 3.5 per 1,000. We're truly proud of the important work the Ministry of Health and so many others have done to help Singaporeans live longer, healthier lives. It is always an honor to be asked to arrange funeral services when a beloved person passes away after a long, rich, rewarding life. With people in Singapore living longer lives than ever before, Teck Hin Funeral Services are designed to console and comfort loved ones and acquaintances."

With adult mortality defined as the chance that a person older than 15 years will pass away before reaching the age of 60, a 2010 report published in the Lancet medical journal detailed world-leading progress made in Singapore between 1970 and that year. The study's authors found that adult mortality in Singapore dropped by nearly three-quarters for both genders over that period, leaving women with less than a five-percent chance of dying between the ages of 15 and 60.

Since then, even more progress has been made. With the Singaporean Ministry of Health focusing intently on lowering the incidence of adult mortality further, recently released statistics for 2016 put the age-adjusted annual death rate at a mere 3.0 per 1,000 residents. That represents a significant reduction compared even to the 2010 totals that clocked in at 3.5 per 1,000.

As one of the country's leading funeral specialists, Teck Hin Undertaker offers a full range of services to bereaved families. From Christian or Taoist arrangements to Teck Hin Buddhist Funeral Services, the company treats every passing with the greatest of care and sensitivity, helping loved ones heal and focus on recovering from their loss.
