As Hanoi is the country’s economic and political hub, a high level of IT adoption allows the city to use computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI) and webform for surveys.

The national 2021 economic census, which started in Hanoi from March 1, is progressing as planned, according to Head of the Hanoi’s Statistics Office Dau Ngoc Hung.

“Hanoi was among a handful of provinces/cities to carry out the pilot economic census prior to the start of the process nationwide, and statistics officials have no difficulties in carrying out their works,” he noted.

Hung also said the support from the municipal People’s Committee would be critical to ensure efficient implementation of the 2021 economic census, including the setup of a Steering Committee and task force to aid the process.

“We ensure close cooperation between local departments and units in drafting list of units and businesses subject for survey,” Hung added, saying students from universities in Hanoi make up 30% of 1,000 statistics officials.

As Hanoi is the country’s economic and political hub, a high level of IT adoption allows the city to computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI) and webform for surveys, stated Hung.

Meanwhile, a major issue during the process is the large pool for survey with 30 districts and 579 wards. The local statistics authorities estimated at least 200,000 enterprises, 4,000 non-government agencies and 380,000 business associations, religious establishments, beliefs would take part in the process.

Taking place every five year, the data collection period for the national 2021 economic census is being carried out from March 1 to July 30, 2021, while the preliminary result is set to publish in December 2021 and the final one in the second quarter of 2022.

The Economic Census 2021 is one of three important Censuses conducted by the statistics sector that will provide comprehensive data on the industry, construction and service sectors; 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.

It has great significance for the direction and administration of the ministries, branches and localities, helping the Party and State have an overall economic picture of the whole country; grasping the current situation of the economy in general and of each branch and locality; identifying potentials and advantages that need to be exploited; pinpointing barriers and challenges that must be overcome; and most importantly, making appropriate decisions, direction and administration for a fast and sustainable economic development.

The results of this survey will also be an important basis for successful implementation of the major tasks of the ministries, branches and the government on economic restructuring, growth model renewal, and efficiency improvement, productivity and competitiveness of the economy.
