ILMIA will, on a best efforts basis, keep a record of surveys covering the labour market in Malaysia. Descriptions of all ILMIA surveys, viz NER, Wage Index, Labour Costs, Environmental Scans, etc. and others conducted by MOHR departments and agencies will be the core components. Surveys and studies of other government agencies and private organizations that have agreements with ILMIA for sharing data and information through the LMIDW platform will also form part of the material provided here. All other surveys will be captured and where information is available, links provided.
ILMIA has been conducting the National Employment Returns (NER) surveys since 2007. The current NER survey, replaced a previous survey called The Annual Employment Return (AER). NER is conducted among registered firms and employers in Malaysia, usually on a two-year cycle. Besides providing an insight into the labour market in Malaysia, the NER is a useful tool that serves to identify emerging trends in salary/wages and contributes to developing policies relating to human resource development.

A project to develop a national wage index (NWI) has been commissioned by ILMIA to meet the initiative set out in the Eleventh Malaysia Plan (RMK11). The NWI will measure changes of wages and salaries in the Malaysian labour market, with details by major MASCO job categories and by MISC economic sectors, together with other socio-economic information. NWI survey has been conducted beginning in the quarter ending September 2016 and scheduled to be finish in the mid of 2018.
ILMIA is giving opportunity to other government agencies and private organizations to promote their ongoing survey which related to labour market, following respective sharing arrangements. For those who are interested in collaborating, please let us know.
