The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a Universal plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have set 17 goals and 169 related targets to be achieved by 2030. In Malaysia, the current development plan that is 11th Malaysia Plan 2016-2020, was formulated with People as the centerpiece of all development efforts, in many aspects mirrors the multi-dimensional nature of the SDGs and will serve as an overarching and guiding policy for sustainable development. In line to support SDGs indicators, Big Data plays a pivotal role to achieve the aspiration by providing real time information and evidence-based decision making through the predictive analytics. Thus, Big Data Analytics (BDA) has become a top priority for Malaysia’s government and one of the key pillars for national ICT development under the 11th Malaysia Plan. In becoming a leading statistical agency internationally by 2020, DOSM has taken efforts to utilise big data to improvise outcome and produce a more comprehensive and quality services. DOSM is vital to ensure the statistical products and services are able to fulfil users’ expectations. In tandem with DOSM's Transformation Plan 2015-2020 and aiming to make the most of the fast-growing volume of digital data, DOSM has initiated the implementation of Big Data Analytics under the project of StatsBDA. This presentation aims to highlight DOSM’s experiences in constructing official statistics by using big data which is aligned to the 2030 Agenda for SDGs.
