Gender statistics that help policymakers identify the differences and inequalities between women and men, their priorities and needs; thereby contributing to the development and criticism of policies and programs aimed at ensuring maximum benefits for both women and men, promoting, operating, developing, implementing and monitoring policies and programs, socio-economic development, ensuring substantive gender equality in all fields

To encourage institutions, organizations and individuals to pay attention to and use gender statistics, The General Statistics Office (GSO) developed a set of national statistical indicators on gender development (SNSIGD), including 105 national gender development statistical indicators, which was approved by the Prime Minister in Decision No. 56/2011/QD-TTg of 14 October 2011. Immediately after that, publications on gender statistics were compiled and published by the General Statistics Office in 2012, 2016 and 2018.

In 2019, the SNSIGD were reviewed and revised to 78 official targets and issued in Circular 10/2019/TT-BKHDT dated July 30, 2019 by the Ministry of Planning and Investment. Using this indicator set, the General Statistics Office (GSO) compiled the publications on gender statistics in Vietnam 2020 and 2021 which presents gender statistics in 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.

As the publication may face inevitable shortcomings, we welcome any comments to improve its quality. Please send comments to: the Social and Environmental Statistics Department, the General Statistics Office, 54 Nguyen Chi Thanh, Lang Thuong, Dong Da, Hanoi, or email us at
