The Department of Statistics was established in 1949 under the provisions of the Statistics Ordinance 1949 and was then known as the Bureau of Statistics.

In Peninsular Malaysia, state offices were established in stages from 1971 to 1982. In the government organisational structure, the Department of Statistics, Malaysia is placed under the Prime Minister's Department.
