Results from the data analysis show that the age-sex structure of the population in Viet Nam is typical for the period of transition from high to low mortality and fertility. The analysis provides evidence related to important demographic issues such as the “demographic window of opportunity”, population ageing, youth, single elderly differences between regions and population groups, and factors that affect the sex-age structure.It also provides policy recommendations in order to meet the needs of a demographic change.
