Viet Nam National Child Labour Survey 2012

This is the first national child labour survey in Viet Nam. With ILO technical support, the survey of 50,640 households was carried out by the General Statistical Office and the report was prepared by the Institute for Labour Sciences and Social Affairs.

To establish a national child labour database and contribute to the global target of eliminating the worst forms of child labour by 2016, Viet Nam’s General Statistics Office (GSO), with technical support from the International Labour Organization (ILO) through its International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC), conducted a nationwide survey on child labour.

“The Viet Nam National Child Labour Survey 2012” prepared by Viet Nam’s Institute of Labour
Science and Social Affairs (ILSSA) – an affiliate of the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs
(MOLISA), is developed from the data set provided by the General Statistics Office (GSO) with
special technical assistance from the ILO.
