Expensive place to retire

Hi Mr.Tan,
I found this article interesting and shocking.
"According to the study, the annual household income required to lead a "comfortable" retired life in Singapore is the third highest among Asia's major economies, behind Australia and Hong Kong, at $48,773. This figure is 68% higher than what was needed in 2011, the survey, which has been running for eight years, found."

So what has gone up 60% odd since 2011 to cause that very much higher level of household income(passive) needed for comfortable retirement here ?

Could it be the population jump ?
