This profile of key sex-disaggregated indicators from the 2009 Viet Nam Population and Housing Census is an initial effort to extract fundamental information on gender differences based on census indicators, and thereby to identify areas (both sectoral and geographic) where gender gaps still remain. It is thus an attempt to supplement existing information and evidence on gender equality in Viet Nam and is intended to demonstrate the importance of a systematic sex disaggregation in data analysis for evidence-based and effective policy development and planning. This booklet represents the seventh in a series of booklets published by UNFPA in recent years. It is based solely on the Population and Housing Census data, particularly the 15% sample of 2009 and the 3% sample data of 1999, and draws from the Major Findings1 and a series of census monographs developed by the GSO and UNFPA.Full review
As a result of sharp reductions in fertility and mortality as well as increased life expectancy at birth, the elderly population in Viet Nam is increasing rapidly in both absolute and relative numbers. The population projections by the General Statistics Office (GSO, 2010) show that the elderly population (persons aged 60 and over) as a percent of the total population will reach 10 percent in 2017, or the Vietnamese population will enter the so-called ”aging phase” from 2017 onward. Similar to rapid population growth, rapid population aging creates various pressures on economic growth, as well as on the infrastructure and social protection services. This report aims to provide a comprehensive review and analysis of related issues, and provide tentative recommendations for policy responses to issues related to aging in the years to come.
Sex ratio imbalance at birth has affected several countries in the Asia and Pacific Region, including China, South Korea and India. Also Viet Nam has recently experienced an unusually rapid rise in the sex ratio at birth (SRB). The overall objective of this research is to provide evidence for policy dialogue, to develop new and refine the existing interventions and policy developments on son preference and sex ratio at birth.
This publication comprises the most important 56 indicators of Viet Nam's 2009 Housing and Population Census, including completed results and expanded sample results (for those items not included in the questionnaire). It is noted that in this pubilcation the expanded sample results have been resised in comparison with the "Expanded sample results" released in December 2009, and thus they have replaced with the respective information in this publication.
One of the important input information of policy making and socioeconomic planning work is future population size of the whole country and lower administrative units. Consequently, population projections are normally implemented periodically.Full review
