Assalamualaikum wbt and Salam Sejahtera.
Welcome to the portal of Malaysia Population & Housing Census 2020 (MyCensus 2020).
The Malaysia Population and Housing Census is one of the most crucial statistical exercises conducted in numerous countries throughout the world including Malaysia. Besides providing a comprehensive and detailed resident and housing statistics at a time for the demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of the population, it also provides fundamental information for monitoring the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which includes a commitment to eradicate poverty, equality, environment sustainability and ensuring that no one left behind.
The decennial exercise of Malaysia Population and Housing Census has been implemented 5 times since 1970. The 6th census will commence in July 2020 by introducing Malaysia Integrated Population Census System (MyIPCS) to modernize MyCensus 2020. This centralized and comprehensive census system with improved e-Census features provides a unified and integrated framework covering the process of complex data collection, analysis and dissemination. Thus, the implementation of MyIPCS in 2020 census will benefit both compilers and respondents in ensuring everyone is counted. Additional questions on housing details, health, lifestyle and social relations are also included in 2020 census round to cater the changing lifestyle pattern in society.
DOSM also adapted a new approach by introducing a secure, comprehensive and interactive portal for MyCensus 2020 (www.mycensus.gov.my) as an information gateway that offers an abundance of census information in the form of infographics, interactive visualizations and various online census-related applications such as Stats Geoportal which provides census data in interactive geospatial format at small geographic areas up to the district level.
Thank you for getting involved in Malaysia Population & Housing Census 2020. Please ensure you and your family are counted and your information are strictly CONFIDENTIAL.
