Average Household Income Surpassing RM5,900 a Month? Wow kemosabe,what have you been smokin? Thats some mighty strong stuff there.

The preliminary report of the 2014 Household Income Survey undertaken by the government indicates that the people enjoy a better standard of living with the average household income surpassing RM5,900 a month.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Abdul Wahid Omar (pic) said this was significantly better compared with the survey findings in 2012 which denoted that the average household income then was RM5,000 a month.
He said Malaysia had been very successful in stimulating the economy as proven by the commendable gross domestic product (GDP) growth of 6.3% in the first half of the year.

Good morning, YB. 
You must have taken a couple of double expresso and feeling giddy this morning. Go ahead and enjoy yourself, but please don't insult our intelligence -

Average income = RM 5,900 per month does not tell much. 

What is the median income? 

What is the modal income (the most common income)? 

These are statistics that will give us a better idea of income distribution. Average income can be very high if 1% has a very high income while the other 99% has a very low income. 

His focus on just this parameter alone is indicative of his intention to mislead!

Put 10 of us together in a room with Bill Gates and all of us would be billionaires on average.

Get real Wahid, go to the rural areas and in particular the interiors of Sabah and Sarawak. You'll realise that the law of averages doesn't apply to the folks in these areas.

I really do not know how they derive at the survey. The poverty rate is still a drag for the country despite a rosy picture painted by the government. Many families are still struggling to put food on the table. We have failed.
