Women’s Leadership in Vietnam’s Public Sector

Tác giả: Vu Manh Loi

Trang: 3-16

Abstract: Using existing data published by public agencies, especially websites of government organizations and agencies, and data from the Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery Census 2006, this paper presents analysis of women’s leadership in Vietnam’s public sector. The analysis in this paper shows the fact that women are far less represented among all kinds of leadership in all public sectors. Participation of women is not even across sectors and areas of social life. They tend to have more participation in areas such as cultural, education, and health care, and they have less participation in construction, transportation, and areas of technological nature, and they have no/little representation in defense and security leadership. Where they have more participation, women often do not keep highest positions. The low female leadership is widespread in all provinces and geographical regions. Scatter evidence from the Agricultural, Forestry and Fishery Census 2006 suggests that to achieve the same position as men, women have to work harder and have to have higher education.

Schooling of Children and Adolescents in Rural Areas

Tác giả: Nguyen Duc Vinh

Trang: 17-44

Abstract: The article explores the impacts of individual and family factors on the schooling of children and adolescents in the rural areas of the four provinces: Yen Bai, Ha Nam, Thua Thien Hue and Tien Giang 2004-08. The research findings show that economic difficulty, poor studying performance and no willing to learn are the three main reasons for the dropout of children. Mothers' educational background plays a more important role than fathers' regarding the school enrollment of rural children and adolescents. Parents seem not to have gender discrimination attitudes or behaviors in term of children's education although girls' education is restrained since they have to participate in productive household work earlier and more often than boys. Children having many siblings will encounter more disadvantages in access to schools and schooling on right age, especially among rural areas in the context of economic transition. Keywords: Children; Adolescents; Education.

The Use of Demographic Data in Vietnam

Tác giả: Nguyen Thanh Liem, Le Bach Duong, Nguyen Le Trang

Trang: 45-58

Abstract: Over the past two decades, various demographic surveys were carried out. General Statistics Office of Vietnam under supports of international organizations has collected several nationally representative data. Other Government and non-Government institutions have also collected various data. While those demographic data provide a good resource for policy making and planning, question of their use remained. This paper aims to gather major demographic data in Vietnam over the last two decades, assess their use, and raise recommendations for more effective use of this valuable resource. The results show that those demographic data were under-used: the number of studies using those data source is small and a large number of potential topics for analysis were ignored. Low awareness and accessibility to data, limited human capacity to exploit quantitative data, and lack of resources for in-depth analysis would have contributed to this low use of demographic data and they should be changed. Keywords: Demographic Data Availability.
