The results will help the Government better assess the current economic state and socio-economic development trend.

The General Statistics Office (GSO) will survey over five million individual business households and 45,000 religious groups nationwide from July 1-31.

This is the second phase of the 2021 national economic census, said GSO Deputy Director General Nguyen Trung Tien on June 29.

In the first phase, which was carried out from March 1-May 30, the GSO collected data from enterprises, cooperatives, administrative units, and associations. In localities, with over 8,000 enterprises, the data collection process is scheduled to complete in August.

“To date, the first phase has progressed as planned with data transferred and stored in the main server of the GSO,” noted Tien, saying IT has been instrumental in ensuring efficiency in the data collection.

Tien said the main objective of the national economic census is to collect data from different economic components, including enterprises, cooperatives, associations, business households, religious groups, and assess their development in terms of quantity, scale, and a number of employees.

Results from the process would help the government better assess the current economic state and socio-economic development trend, which serve as the basis for drafting national development strategies and plans.

The GSO would mobilize around 30,000 staff to take part in the process, he added.

“Collecting timely and accurate data across the country while ensuring data privacy amid the Covid-19 pandemic is a huge challenge, which requires flexible management and safety virus-countermeasures,” Tien stressed.

Vu Thi Thuy from the GSO’s Statistical Data Collection and Information Technology Application Department said in case a business household is being temporarily closed during the survey, statistics staff should contact owners to arrange an appropriate time for an interview.

Carried out every five years, the preliminary result of the 2021 national economic census is set to publish in December 2021 and the final one in the second quarter of 2022.

The 2021 national economic census is one of three important censuses conducted by the statistics sector that will provide comprehensive data on the industry, construction, and service sectors. It also helps to reflect the scale of GDP, the structure of each economic sector in GDP, as an important premise for the calculation of the national GDP data and the GRDP of each locality.
