The Statistical Yearbook, an annual publication by the General Statistics Office, comprises basic data reflecting the general socio-economic dynamic and situation of the whole country, socio-economic regions, and localities. In addition, there are also selected statistics of countries and territories in the world in order to provide reference information for data users’ studies and international comparisons.

Besides the system of data tables, explanations of terminologies, contents and methodologies of some key statistical indicators, the Yearbook also analyzes and assesses the main features of the socio-economic situation of the country and of some sectors in 2021. According to the plan, from the 2021 Statistical Yearbook, the General Statistics Office officially announces the revision of GDP size and related indicators for monitoring and evaluating the socio-economic development plan in the period 2021-2025. GDP data and related figures of some sectors and activities to compile GDP for the years 2018-2020 are calculated on the basis of the results of the revision of GDP size in the period of 2010-2017, the results of the 2021 Economic Census, and finalization of the State Budget in 2019 and 2020.

The General Statistics Office would like to express its great attitude to all agencies, units, and individuals for comments as well as contributions to the contents and format of the publication. We look forward to receiving further inputs to perfect the Statistical Yearbook to better meet the demands of domestic and foreign data users.
