Capital Stock Statistics, Malaysia 1955 - 2009

Release Date : Thursday 28, April 2011 1800

BACKGROUND

Data on Capital Stocks Malaysia for the period of 1955 to 2009 was compiled in collaboration between Department of Statistics, Malaysia (DOSM) and Economic Planning Unit (EPU) and with the consultant from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The compilation was prepared based on OECD Manual, Measuring Capital and the framework of System of National Accounts (SNA) as recommended by the United Nations.

This is the first attempt on the compilation of the statistics and continuous updates will be done annually by DOSM. The statistics present the wealth and the productive assets of a country in terms of fixed assets. In general, the capital stock refers to accumulated investment (in terms of fixed assets) which is still in operation in the country. Three main components of capital stocks are Gross Capital Stock (GKS), Net Capital Stock (NKS) and Productive Capital Stock (PKS).

The statistics was compiled at both current and constant (2000=100) price. The main findings presented are referring to the Net Capital Stock at current price only.
