Census data officially available in cyberspace in Vietnam

On 9th December, the General Statistics Office of Vietnam announced the Population and Development Spatial Data System - a digital tool to update data on the Census and other objectives about population and economic development at http://gis.gso.gov.vn to support policy evolution.

Since 2019, by maximizing the application of information technology at all stages in the Population and Housing Census in Vietnam, the General Statistics Office has collected data on geographical coordinates of more than 26 million households across the country. To take advantage of this extremely valuable and unprecedented data source in Vietnam, this unit has built the website of the Population and Development Spatial Data System (https://gis.gso.gov) 

Talking about the three goals of building a news site, Ms. Nguyen Thi Huong, General Director of the General Statistics Office said, first of all, the news page is a tool to digitize the map of Vietnam with data collected from the census, housing in 2019 and the economic census in 2021. Digitized information and GPS positioning form a data warehouse that helps users to look up information easily by geographical partition to the smallest administrative level, including topographic maps, administration, traffic, water surface, disaster relief, medical facilities and so on.

Secondly, the website aims to make use of GPS data of households collected from the 2019 Census to step by step identify, review and inspect the enquiry area.

Thirdly, putting data on the cyberspace affirms our commitment to constant innovation, meeting the increasingly demands in management, leadership, and policy-making based on evidence.

The data system is also connected to the Disaster Monitoring System of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and integrated with the spatial data of health facilities, which will provide useful information for the development of necessary intervention programs, including disaster response.

"I expect the system to provide policymakers and researchers with important information about population, geography, population in relation to social, economic and environmental issues, which acts as a contributor to meet the needs of research and evidence-based policy development,” Ms. Naomi Kitahara, United Nations Population Fund Representative in Vietnam said.

From the Population and Development Spatial Data System, users can observe the information represented by different maps, thereby analyzing and evaluating the interrelated impacts between the population and the population. In addition, users can also export data in the form of excel tables and charts to support in-depth research and analysis activities.
