Description:
Chinese Singaporeans () are people of Chinese ethnicity who hold Singaporean nationality. As of 2010, Chinese Singaporeans constitute 74.1% of Singapore's resident population, or approximately three out of four Singaporeans, making them the largest ethnic group in Singapore. Outside Greater China, Singapore is the only country in the world where ethnic Chinese constitute a majority of the population.

Ethnic Chinese in Singapore tend to identify themselves primarily as Singaporeans (新加坡人) and only secondarily as Chinese (Huaren/ 华人/華人). The terms Chinese Singaporean or Singaporean Chinese are used interchangeably. In terms of racial or ethnic identity, Chinese in Singapore commonly identify themselves as "Huaren 华人/華人" rather than "Huayi 华裔/華裔" or "Huaqiao 华侨/華僑" . Peranakan Chinese are the offspring of ethnic Chinese who had married indigenous peoples and have developed a unique culture distinct from the Chinese majority.
