REGNVN identifies the region within Vietnam in which the household was enumerated. It is the largest-scale geographic identifier available in the Vietnam samples. REGNVN is harmonized solely based on the names of the geographical unit. It does not take into account the changes that may have occurred in the political boundaries of the units.

The full set of geography variables for Vietnam can be found in the IPUMS International Geography variables list. For cross-national geographic analysis on the first and second major administrative level refer to GEOLEV1 and GEOLEV2. More information on IPUMS-International geography can be found here.
