Assalamualaikum wbt. Salam Sejahtera. Salam 1Malaysia.
Welcome to the Website of the Department of Statistics, Malaysia.
The tremendous demand for statistics as a consequence of the fast changes in economic structure within the country and globally and with the expansion of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) have created a statistical user community which demands for timely, real-time, relevant and of integrity information. This dynamic and complex demand from statistical user community poses challenges to the Department to ensure that the task of collecting, interpreting and communicating statistics is efficiently undertaken.
Vision of becoming a leading statistical organisation by year 2020 provides a platform for the Department to enhance its statistical delivery to be at par with statistical organisations of developed countries. Thus, through Strategic Plan 2010-2014, the Department has indentified various programmes to enhance its statistical management and information technology so that data collection activities, interpretation and data delivery to all users, be it the Government, private sector or international organisations are effectively implemented. The Department also instils innovative and creative culture among officers as an initiative to fulfil the various users' needs in the dynamic and challenging global environment.
With the aspiration of 1Malaysia: People First, Performance Now, the Department continues its efforts to enhance data accessibility through this website by providing free downloading facility. In addition, a new portal with more interactive facilities and user-friendly is in the pipeline.
Statistics provided in the website is continuously updated based on latest information. Besides the statistical information compiled by the Department, the website also provides useful links to other relevant organisations as reference to users.
