Malaysian Population Census Report

As of my last update in January 2022, I don’t have access to specific data from the 2020 Malaysian population census. However, the most recent census prior to that was conducted in 2010, when Malaysia’s population was around 28.3 million. For the latest population figures and demographic information, it’s best to refer to the Department of Statistics Malaysia or other official sources for the 2020 census data.
