Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM) has launched the ‘Dashboard Kawasanku’ for evidence-based decision-making on 15 June 2022. The new platform among others developed by DOSM will serve the increasing demand for information by data users.
Kawasanku (meaning MyArea / MyLocality in Bahasa Melayu) is the first step by DOSM towards creating a new generation open data platform that includes data from the Malaysia Population & Housing Census 2020 and a variety of associated indicators. The online module further aims to provide user-friendly, timely as well as high-quality statistics information and services to data users.
The Dashboard has four main themes, namely Geography, Population and Demography, Economy, and Public Facilities as well as a Visualisation Map comparing population density, household income, poverty rate, access to electricity and water, percentage of forest-covered, light intensity between locations/areas in Malaysia. The Dashboard is intended to give citizens, policymakers and the international community an accessible way to explore the dataset hosted by the DOSM.
The Dashboard Kawasanku is also made available in English and can be accessed through: https://kawasanku.dosm.gov.my/. For other online services provided by DOSM, please visit: https://www.dosm.gov.my/v1/index.php?r=columnnew/onlineservices
