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%.
