  14. 14. Significance of survey results<br />From the first question, we can see that only about half of the surveyed people think that we have a national identity<br />This shows that the Singaporean Identity is not yet obvious and distinct<br /> Also, we can see that Singaporeans do indeed have some awareness of our local literature and national songs so it is possible that a national identity can be created from of this aspect<br />Finally, we can also conclude that food plays a part in what defines us as Singaporeans because it is one of the things that we have in common.<br />
