  1. There is a very weak and statistically significant correlation between secondary school education and self-professed knowledge of Kedayan calendar (r = 0.236, p < 0.05) alone. The overall results indicate that level of formal education does not determine self-professed awareness and knowledge on Kedayan calendar
  2. ***p < 0.01, **p < 0.05, *p < 0.1
