Last week, the Merdeka Center released the findings of its National (Youth) Public Opinion Survey towards Economy, Leadership & Current Issues to track the interest and opinions of budak-budak Malaysia about Malaysian politics. From the 3rd to the 8th of August, they called 604 respondents from Semenanjung Malaysia between the ages of 21-30 asking questions about a range of topics.

To break down the respondents who were interviewed:

  • Malays made up 68%, while Chineseand Indians were 23% and 9% respectively.
  • 60% work in the private sector, 15% are self employed, 11% are studentsor unemployed (we like how they’re the same thing ), 8% work in the government or a GLC, and 6% are homemakers.
  • For age groups, 21% of the sample were 21 to 23 year olds, 41% were 24 to 26, and 38% were 27 to 30.

And now that you have a rough idea of who their interviewees are, here are some of the most interesting things we found out about them from the survey!
