Codes and Frequencies
BPLMY indicates the person's state of birth within Malaysia.
Comparability — General
There are two comparability issues:
The 1970-1980 samples exclude those who live in Borneo (Sabah and Sarawak); therefore, birthplace data for those states will not be comparable with 1991-2000.
For the country of birth of foreign-born persons, see BPLCOUNTRY.
