National Youth Survey 2008: Perspectives toward social involvement, politics, lifestyle and values
The survey was conducted by Merdeka Center for Opinion Research through telephone interviews throughout Malaysia, including Sabah and Sarawak. A total of 2,518 respondents provided completed feedback using a structured questionnaire. Each respondent is defined as a youth aged 20 between 35 years old. The poll was conducted from 13th November to 9th December 2008. Sampling for the respondents was structured along the national population profile (specifically proportional to gender, ethnicity and state of residence).
The objectives of this survey were to get young adults in Malaysia to speak for themselves rather than others who speak on their behalf on issues pertaining to their participation in community activities and politics as well as their views towards lifestyle and values.
This is the third consecutive year Merdeka Center has been conducting the National Youth Survey with the support of the Asia Foundation.
