Getting It Right on the B40 Terminology

We often use the term “B40” as a shorthand for poor or low-income households.


The Khazanah Research Institute (KRI) recently released a report which suggests we should rethink using the term “B40” as a shorthand for poor or low-income households.


KRI propose to demarcate different categories of households by factoring in location, household sizes and consumption levels.


We speak to Gregory Ho Wai Son, co-author of the report and Research Associate at Khazanah Research Institute to get a better understanding of the report. 

Presented by: Khoo Hsu Chuang, Sharidz Abdullah
