The Population Clock Malaysia is updated every minute. The Population Clock covers all usual residents in Malaysia. It excludes Malaysians residing outside of Malaysia (example: students, workers, ambassadors, commissioners, etc).
The Population Clock is generated based on the 2010 Population and Housing Census which had been adjusted for under enumeration as well as to mid year population. This population is updated by adding births also net migration and subtracting deaths. Estimates on number of births and deaths are based on records received from the National Registration Department. Meanwhile, estimates on number of migrants are based on data obtained from the Ministry of Home Affairs.
This projection does not take into consideration factors such as natural disasters or epidemics which can significantly affect death estimates. The estimates used are assumed to be constant for a period of three months (every quarter) before the estimates are updated. The population increase may be subjected to small discrepancies caused by rounding.
