Young People in Viet Nam: Selected Indicators from the 2009 Viet Nam Population and Housing Census

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 booklet is the eighth in a series published by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) during recent years. Information is drawn from the Viet Nam 2009 Population and Housing Census data and from the Major Findings, a series of census data monographs developed by the General Statistics Office (GSO) and the UNFPA. The Population and Housing Census, conducted every 10 years, provides a comprehensive survey that identifies crucial information on national and sub-national population structure, educational attainment, employment, migration, housing status, and living conditions. The aim of this booklet is to analyse the Census data and create a profile of indicators highlighting trends among the young population as the generation most vital to Viet Nam’s future development.

Profile of Key Sex-Disaggregated Indicators from the 2009 Viet Nam Population and Housing Census

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.

Taking advantage of the Demographic Bonus in Viet Nam: Opportunities, challenges and policy options

Based on data from the population and housing Censuses in 1979-2009, as well as population projections, the aim of this report is to analyze changes in the age structure of the Vietnamese population in the past and the future. The report further focuses on the opportunities but also on the challenges presented by the current ‘demographic bonus’ period. Suggestions are made with regard to four main policy areas: (i) education and training; (ii) labour, employment and human resources; (iii) population, family and health; and (iv) social protection. The report aims to provide a thorough and comprehensive review and analysis of the issues, and provide tentative recommendations for policy makers and planners in order to maximize the potential advantage of the demographic bonus period.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December

 

Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.
