Friday, 15 Feb 2019 07:54 ET
By Keith Golden
February 2019 -- Data Buffet now carries an excerpt of the quarterly detailed labor force survey (population by age, labor force status measures, employment by industry, and earnings) for Vietnam and its subnational areas (100 new quarterly series from 2009, 10 defunct series).

Dataset properties:

  • Classification: VSIC 2007, based on UN ISIC Rev. 4 and ACIC
  • Measurements:
    • Thousands of Vietnamese dong (Ths. VND)
    • Thousands of persons (Ths. #)
    • Percentage (%)
  • Adjustment: Not seasonally adjusted (NSA)
  • Geo coverage: Country, 8 regions, 2 metropolitan areas
  • Do all concept-geo pairs exist: No. Subnational coverage is available only for labor force, employment, unemployment, wages, and share of employment by three sectors.
  • Native frequencies and date ranges:
    • Quarterly, from 2009Q3
    • Quarterly, 2012Q4 to 2014Q4
    • Annual, as early as 2000 to 2015

The series reside in the historical catalog (Vietnam » Labor and wages » Report on Labor Force Survey) and include, for example:

  • LW%EMSECTUA.IVNM   = [DISCONTINUED] Percentage distribution of employment - Industry and construction - Both sexes, (%) - for Vietnam
  • LWQEMTTUQ.IVNM_MR  = Employed - Both sexes, (Ths. #, NSA) - for Mekong River Delta
  • LWQLFTUQ.IVNM_MHOC = Labor force - Both sexes, (Ths. #, NSA) - for Ho Chi Minh Metropolitan Area

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.
