Firms & Companies Selected for the NWI Quarterly Surveys
The National Wage Index Quarterly SurveysThe National Wage Index (NWI) will be developed from quarterly survey data of wages and salaries. The surveys cover both the private and public sectors. About 3,000 private sector establishments (firms and companies) have been randomly selected and they are located throughout Malaysia, i.e. Peninsular, Sabah and Sarawak. The NWI survey will be used only for official and statistical purposes in accordance with the Employment Information Act 1953.
The National Wage Index (NWI) surveys will collect relevant, timely and reliable information related to salaries and wage data in order to develop the National Wage Index. This benchmark indicator will quantify the changes in salaries and wages of occupations in the labour market. This project had commenced in September 2016. Two quarterly NWI surveys had been conducted for September and December 2016. The MOHR has launched the NWI Quarterly Surveys for 2017, specifically the Third (March 2017 reference month), Fourth (June 2017), Fifth (September 2017) and Sixth (December 2017) Surveys. These surveys will begin from September 2017 onwards.
This effort requires that selected firms and companies provide wage and salary information of their full time employees. Your cooperation and participation in this survey is critical to the success of this national effort in developing the NWI.
