How is this data produced?

A live birth is a birth with signs of life upon delivery, even if only for a short while. The data on live births in Malaysia is tabulated based on information reported during the births registration process, specifically in the in Register of Birth Form (JPN.LM01). For a deeper understanding of the methodology and associated definition, please refer to the Technical Notes.

What caveats I should bear in mind when using this data?

This data is derived based on births registered with JPN. Accordingly, if a birth is not registered with JPN (for instance, if a foreigner chooses to register their child in their home country, or if a resident in a remote area does not register the birth of their child), it will not count in this dataset.
