Jobless Claims

About 70% of the Malaysian labour force is registered under SOCSO's Employment Insurance system (EIS), which gives workers immediate financial assistance if they lose their job. As a result, SOCSO observes the Malaysian labour market in real time. For policymakers, SOCSO data is a critical complement to DOSM's Labour Force Survey, takes time to conduct to a high standard given that it is a representative nationwide survey. This dashboard brings you SOCSO's high-frequency labour data, and allows you to observe various labour market trends as they unfold!
