    Usage of 'our population'

    If I am referring to our country's population, is it correct to say "Our population..." instead of mentioning my country, eg 'The population of Malaysia is..."

    Thanks.

    Re: Usage of 'our population'

    If all of your audience knows who "we" is, then yes.
