UndiTraffic data collaboration with The Edge

#KhorReports is participating in a #TrafficData study with @The Edge Markets!!

Much to the surprise of Malaysian voters, polling day will take place on Wednesday (May 9). . Disgruntled voters complain that it will be “Hari Raya and Chinese New Year rolled into one,” expecting road traffic snarl ups. Might that be true?

We are working with The Edge Malaysia to set up the Undi Traffic for the 14th general election (GE14) to examine how traffic builds up in Peninsular Malaysia. This review of journey times from the #Google Traffic Layer, will come online in just a few days, starting Monday, May 7, 2018.

A Malaysia General Election exodus? Selected indicators

Malaysia's 13th General Election in 2013 points to a bifurcated Malaysia socio-political landscape. Very simply, it is ‘urban for Pakatan’ (the opposition coalition) and ‘rural for UMNO-BN’ (the long-ruling coalition).

The recent announcement of an unprecedented  midweek polling day, Wednesday 9th May 2018 for the 14th General Election is contentious. The worry in the political contest is that outstation voters are affected. They work in the bigger urban areas (the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Penang and Singapore) and they tend to be opposition supporters. These voters need to travel some distance intra or inter-state or further including from Peninsular to East Malaysia to return home to vote.

Khor Reports' data map below shows selected indicators from PLUS and Waze for festive season travel hot spots. In addition, we provide some popular estimates for key outstation voter and resident segments. We expect to update and upgrade this map.

Sneak peak: Indonesia's internal migrants by Khor Reports

We have also been working on Indonesia migrant workers data, looking at the internal movement of people. Indonesia has a long history of movement out of Java from the Dutch Colonial days. Post independence, there has also been large-scale migration via Transmigrasi programmes.

Khor Reports is also working on sub-province socio-economic data indicators for Indonesia, in addition to sub-state indicators for Malaysia. Please contact us for data overlays of oil palm vs non-oil palm and other commodity or business landscapes. Data covers major SDG indicators.

Foreign Workers in Malaysia: Case Study of Oil Palm in Johor and Sabah

The spatial distribution of foreign workers in Malaysia is a topic that has not been well studied. Khor Reports fill the knowledge gap with a preliminary review of the district-level data for the entire country. We analyse the foreign worker ratio in each district and an oil palm zone case study for Johor and Sabah offer new insights.

We analysed some interesting data on foreign labour in each Malaysian state and district from the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM) - using data on citizen and non-citizens - and found some surprising results. Sabah's share of foreign labour was the highest in the country, at approximately 37%, followed by Selangor at 11%.
