Found some interesting stuff from the Advance Census Release of the 2010 Census. [Comments are all tongue-in-cheek]
Our overall population grew from 4.0279 million to 5.0767 million in 10 years.
Citizens grew by 8.20% but their share of the overall population fell from 74.13% to 63.64% [Make more babies!]
PRs grew by 88.17% and their share of the population grew from 7.14% to 10.66%.
Non-Residents grew by 72.96% and their share of the population grew from 18.73% to 25.70%
In terms of ethnicity (CMIO):

Here’s the real interesting bit. As it stands, there are now more females than males in Singapore (1:0.974 or about 50.65%), as for the non-Singaporean Resident population about 55.80% of them are female.
Malaysia: 56.68% female [I wonder how many of you are going to Ipoh to look for wives?]
China/HK/Macau: 58.49% female [Who go Chengdu to look for wives ah?]
Indian Subcontinent: 46.09% female [Why no one go Bombay to look for wives?]
Indonesia: 66.18% female [No good men in Indonesia?]
Rest of Asia: 58.00% female [Japanese wife fetish?]
Europe: 36.90% female [Please go to Nordic countries to find wives]
USA & Canada: 48.20% female
Australia & NZ: 47.60% female
Others: 50.46% female
As for born-in-Singapore residents 50.86% are male. [There! You have your justification to find a non-Singaporean wife. Not enough Singaporean girls].
I look forward to the full census data and what interesting insights they reveal.
