Social protection data collection in Viet Nam

This course is designed for key actors in Viet Nam involved is social protection data collection and monitoring seeking to strengthen their knowledge of technical aspects, tools and methodologies used to compile and process statistical data.


Social protection data collection and analysis are essential tools for the effective implementation of national strategies, policies and programmes designed to reduce and prevent poverty and vulnerability across the life cycle. The ILO has for decades been supporting its member States throughout data compilation and monitoring process on the functioning of social protection systems. The key ILO tool for periodic collection of administrative data on social protection is the Social Security Inquiry (SSI), which allows for monitoring progress in social protection towards achieving the SDG target 1.3, implementing social protection goals and shaping the vision for the 2030 social protection system in Viet Nam.

The SSI questionnaires reflect the data requirements related to these monitoring needs. Particularly, the SSI questionnaire for the Ministries of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) is tailored to allow monitoring of Target 1.3. Thorough and consistent completion of this questionnaire is critical to fulfilling ILO's monitoring responsibility. In Viet Nam the Institute of Labour Science and Social Affairs (ILSSA) is responsible for the monitoring of the SDG target 1.3 and the implementation of SSI.

The International Training Centre of ILO (ITC-ILO), the ILO country office in Hanoi and the Institute of Labour Science and Social Affairs (ILSSA) in Viet Nam are coordinating and organizing a Training course on Social Protection Data Collection in Viet Nam. The course will rely on live sessions (webinars). Participants will have access to a dedicated eCampus platform to consult selected resources.
