Part of a series describing a survey and subsequent research on how economic and institutional factors influence birthspacing, family size, and breastfeeding in Malaysia, this report contains detailed maps and informal field descriptions of the 52 Primary Sampling Units (PSUs) in the sample. The descriptions are based on interviews with local officials and residents, and on the author’s personal observations made in 1976 and 1977. These descriptions supplement the coded community-level information in the data file. A community executive with Survey Research Malaysia, a private survey firm based in Kuala Lumpur, the author was responsible for collecting all community-level data.
