Observation on data availability/gaps

DOSM publishes data measuring progress of each UN Sustainable Development Goal Indicator. This data is for Indicator 6.3.2: Proportion of bodies of water with good ambient water quality, as a proportion of total river basins. Malaysia classify water quality status by three (3) category that is Clean, Slightly Polluted and polluted. For the purpose of reporting, Slightly Polluted is reported as Good Water Quality in consideration of the big range in index. A difference in one (1) point will give a great impact in water quality classification and this situation is unjustified.
