The Second Malaysian Family Life Survey
Overview and Technical Report
This document discusses the purpose, design, fieldwork, and response rates for the Second Malaysian Family Life Survey (MFLS-2), carried out in Peninsular Malaysia in 1988-1989. MFLS-2 was, in part, a follow-up to the original Malaysian Family Life Survey, fielded in 1976-1977, reinterviewing original respondents and their adult children, plus interviewing a new group of women age 15-49 in 1988. Both surveys produced household-level retrospective and current data from women and their husbands, covering such topics as fertility, nuptiality, migration, mortality, employment, household composition, transfers, and income as well as social, economic, and community-level factors affecting family decisionmaking. MFLS-2 added a sample of older Malaysians to support research on their living standards, health, and intergenerational transfers. Besides MFLS-2 users, this document should interest those planning household surveys in Malaysia or elsewhere, especially those attempting to reinterview a panel of respondents to an earlier survey.
