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.

In all nations, young people must be prepared to make a meaningful contribution towards achieving sustainable economic and social development. Young people who enter the labour force equipped with appropriate skills can refresh and improve the quality of their country’s human capital. In other words, young people are perhaps the most critical determinant of long-term growth and development.  For the purpose of this profile, the youth demographic is defined as the age group between 15-24 years. According to the Population and Housing Census conducted in Viet Nam in 2009, youth comprise the largest age group, accounting for 19.4 per cent of the total population of 85.79 million. They not only form the basis for demographic change but represent the future potential of the country.

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.

The overall purpose of this document is to abstract and summarise a selection of articles from the Asian region and Viet Nam in relation to changing trends in sex ratio at birth (SRB). This is the first annotated bibliography on the topic of the changing SRB in Viet Nam and a selected few other Asian countries.The current bibliography is a first attempt to produce a dynamic document that will assist researchers, policy makers and development partners in identifying what is already known and in addressing the needs resulting from current negative SRB trends that have been identified in Viet Nam.
