General Statistics Office (GSO) compiled the publication “Gender statistics in Vietnam 2020”. It presents gender statistics in 2018 according to various topics, such as: Population, family, education, health, labour and employment, and leadership and management. Information and statistics in the publication were gathered and calculated from the national statistical system (reported by state agencies) and from national surveys conducted by the GSO.

We hope that this publication will provide useful information and statistics for readers to understand the existing gender relations and gender gaps in society. Also, it is expected to facilitate gender analysis and forecast of gender impacts of legislation, policies and programmes for women and men to ensure their equal access to, participation in, and benefits from the national development process. We hope this publication will promote discussions and specific actions towards closing the existing gender gaps in Vietnam.
