It's All In The Numbers

Reliable and trustworthy information is crucial for any decision-making, whether that’s governments drafting policies or civil society casting ballots, and in Malaysia, the Department of Statistics is the keeper of data related to national economic performance and social development.

So we speak to Chief Statistician Dato’ Sri Dr. Mohd Uzir Mahidin about the integrity of this information, the take-up of the National Census 2020, as well as the department’s role in national development.
