Description

ETHNICVN indicates the ethnic group to which the person claims membership.

Comparability — General

The 1999 sample identifies one ethnic group (Ro Man) not specified in the 1989 sample.

In the 2009 sample, Kinh is the only identified ethnic group. All others are grouped together as "Other ethnic group". In the two previous samples, Kinh made up 84% of the sample, while in 2009 they constitute only 77% of the sample. It is possible that some respondents of mixed Kinh ethnicity were placed in the "Other ethnic group" category during the 2009 enumeration.
