The questionnaire is based on a review of the current data, a survey of 273 respondents is conducted and responses from 215 respondents are collected. Most of the respondent (39.1%) have monthly income from RM2000 to RM4000, followed by those with monthly income less than RM2000 (28.8%). A one way ANOVA was conducted to determine whether a significant difference exists between complaining behaviour and income level among public service consumer’s.
