Feedback on numbers discrepancies

FYI,

Just to highlight some discrepancies.
Can help to verify which should I use?

Thanks

2010,Bedok,202500 [from govdata] 203560[from onemap]
2010,Bishan,67800 [from govdata] 68530 [from onemap]

2016,Bishan,64400 [from govdata] 63730 [from onemap]

govdata dataset:

onemap query:

There were many other similar datasets exist in both govdata and onemap, due to possible discrepancies, which dataset [govdata or onemap] would you advise I should used.

Hello,

Though we are getting the data directly from the Department of Statistics, we will check and get back to you asap.

Hi,

For the Type of Dwelling - Population data, you can find the details at data.gov.sg from this link:

The total HDB figure is same between data.gov.sg and OneMap.
Please let me know if you found something different.

Thank you.

Thanks.

But If I were to use the other dataset,

I obtained, 2010,Bedok,202500

Thanks

Hi,

If you looking for Population data, would suggest refer to Singapore Residents by Planning Area and Type of Dwelling data, as the data is from Department of Statistics.

Thanks.
