THE pool of singles is growing in Singapore as fewer people get married and those who do tie the knot are doing so when they are older, according to official data released by the National Population Secretariat yesterday.

The group most reluctant to get married appears to be those aged between 30 and 34.

Compared to 10 years ago, the number of singles within this group rose by 8.7 per cent for men and 8.1 per cent for women.
