SERVANT OF ALLAH on Aug 19, 2018:
First of all i would like to thank your outstanding effort in providing the micro economic variables and constraints.To better improve this research findings I strongestly recommend you and your respective team to provide at least 1000 indexes or at least 100 indexes to prove that your datum( plural for the word data) is legitimately valid.
Let me inspire you, first you have to know the current total population of Kedah.Based on the outdated statistic Kedah population was 1.9 million perhaps now it is 2 million plus.
The next step is to do the quatitative calculation and the qualitative calculation.I summarize the people of Kedah into 5 categories.
First rich people(%).Second Moderate people(%).Third Poor-lowest monthly.Fourth Poorer-Irregular income.Fifth Poorest-Perfectly Zero income.
The above will reflect the truth or the reality of the Kedah people.

Eventhough without comprehensively detailed statatis I am confident the shape of the status of standard of living is inevitably very sad because it can be shown by looking at the shape of Pyramid.The highest peak represents the rich people, the middle part represent the modetate and the lowest level represents the poor people.Irrespective of any political idealogy it is the resonsibility of both the state and parliament ministers to improve this poor status by targetting more poor people will become moderate or rich.
I called Kedah the land with unlimited fortune because no state in the entire malaysia states except Kedah Darul Aman that has been granted with teo times Agong, two times Prime Ministers and two times Menteri Besar.Therefore all government bodies, private firms and any volunteer individuals must unite in contributing any worthable contribution.Thank you very much and keep up doing your future job by inculcating valid datum.
