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.

State of World Population 2016 "10: How our future depends on a girl at this decisive age"

Full review

Viet Nam’s rapid population ageing continues and is expected to accelerate in the future. In recent decades, Viet Nam has made exceptional advances in population health. Mortality and fertility rates have plummeted and life expectancy at birth rose to 70.6 years for men and 76.0 for women in 2014. Together, these trends have led to a greater fraction of the total population comprised by seniors (60 years and above). While in 1990 seniors made up 7.2 per cent of the population, they accounted for 10 per cent in 2011, which marked the country’s entrance into its socalled “ageing phase”.

In 2013, the UNFPA, in partnership with GSO and MOLISA, commissioned a secondary analysis of data from the National Study on Domestic Violence, which was conducted by GSO in 2010. This report should be seen as a supplement, or 'Part 2', of the report "Keeping silent is dying" - Results from the National Study on Domestic Violence against Women in Viet Nam. The study intends to shed some more light on the reasons why in the same cultural context, some women experience more violence by their husbands than do others. This understanding should help the government design more effective interventions and develop necessary policies to address VAW in a more comprehensive manner.
