Environmental statistics 2010 for Malaysia

The Little Green Data Book series is an annual publication by World Bank on the environmental statistics for each country in the world. The latest is The Little Green Data Book 2010 and it is available for free for download.

Anyway, I have downloaded the data specifically for Malaysia and place them here as a table for easier reference.
