Poverty in Malaysia

Poverty Summary: Malaysia


Incidence of Poverty in Malaysia and MDGs

The Millennium Development Goals Report (MDGR, 2015) indicates that Malaysia has achieved most of the goals and objectives. Absolute poverty has been largely eradicated.  The benefits of development have been felt at the national, regional, state levels, and in many cases, the community and individual levels. Remarkable progress in the country is observed in many areas, as revealed by the Millennium Development Goals Report for Malaysia in 2015. The reduction of absolute poverty (based on the national poverty line, which is twice higher than the MDG convention of USD1.25 per capita) from 16.5 percent in 1990 to 0.6 percent in 2014 is commendable.
