New Estimates: Malaysia subnational - Population by age
Wednesday, 18 Sep 2019 13:28 ET
By Kelli Johnson
Summary
September 2019 -- To facilitate international analysis, Moody's Analytics has estimated quarterly population by broad age brackets for Malaysia and its states and federal territories (68 new quarterly series from 1963).
Detail

Motivation: Our national source, the Department of Statistics Malaysia, reports subnational population under the following programs with different combinations of properties:

  • Ten-year, census, by five-year age bracket, for 2000 and 2010
  • Annual, intercensal estimate, by five-year age bracket, as early as 1970
  • Annual, estimate, by five-year age bracket, from 2010
  • Annual, estimate, total population, as early as 1963

Response: For international consistency, Moody's Analytics estimates quarterly population by broad age brackets (total, ages 0 to 14, 15 to 64, 65 and older), for Malaysia and its 16 first-level divisions.

Properties

  • Measurement: Thousands of individuals (Ths. #)
  • Adjustment: Seasonally adjusted (SA)
  • Geo coverage: Country, 13 states, three federal territories
  • Native frequency: Quarterly
  • Start dates:
    • National total: 1963Q2
    • National age brackets: 1970Q2
    • Subnational estimates: 2000Q3

The series reside in the historical catalog (Malaysia » Demographics » Population » Moody's Analytics Estimated) and include, for example:

  RPOP0014Q.IMYS = Population: Ages 0-14, (Ths. #, SA)
  RPOPQ.IMYS_TE = Total - for Terengganu
  RPOP65GQ.IMYS_KL = Ages 65 and older - for Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.

Method: Please refer to the background documentation in Mnemonic 411.
