Information Needs, Information Sources and Satisfaction of Migrant Workers in Malaysia: An Exploratory Study
Inspired by the dearth of study focusing on the information needs of migrant workers in Malaysia, this study was undertaken with the aim to address this gap. A research framework connecting the information needs, information sources being used and personal satisfaction was developed and tested using the data collected through a questionnaire. Based on the analysis of 188 responses, the results showed that the information needs are significantly correlated information sources being used, namely, family, workplace, Internet and service provider. Out of these four sources, the workplace and the internet source are found to have a profound effect on the satisfaction of their information needs. The findings should capture the interest of the authorities concerned to devise strategies for assisting migrant workers in fulfilling their information needs.
