The Statistical Yearbook, an annual publication by the General Statistics Office, comprises basic data reflecting the general socio-economic dynamic and situation of Vietnam. In addition, there are statistics of some countries and territories in the world to provide reference information for studies and international comparison.

General Statistics Office would like to express its sincere thanks to all agencies, organizations and individuals for their suggestions as well as criticisms on the content and form of this publication. We hope to receive further comments to improve Vietnam Statistical Yearbook in the next release and better satisfy the demands of domestic and foreign data users.
