Population and Ethno-Demography in Vietnam

by Silkworm Books

Khong Dien 

This useful reference presents a wealth of statistics on the ethno­demography of Vietnam, focusing primarily on the last few decades. It analyzes the ethnic composition of the population, identifying each of the fifty-four ethnic groups and sub-groups by name, geographical distribution, and linguistic origin. Geographic distribution statistics are provided for each ethnic group, showing the process of migration and redistribution. Other factors covered are population structure, population growth, and the relationship between population and socio­economic development.

The analysis is based on population censuses and annual statistics from both central and local government offices as well as data from the field. The systematic presentation of demographic information in easy - to - read tables, with accompanying explanation and discussion of national population policies, will be invaluable to policy makers, consultants, and researchers requiring detailed and comprehensive information on the multi-ethnic population of Vietnam.
