In July 2014, dataSpring started offering partner’s panels through our own company panel platform, surveyon PARTNERS. We also now offer our company’s Vietnamese online research panels. In this article, we will share some tips in conducting online research in Vietnam.
- Official: Vietnamese
- Survey: Vietnamese
The Vietnamese government groups the various provinces into eight regions: Northwest, Northeast, Red River Delta, North Central Coast, South Central Coast, Central Highlands, Southeast, and Mekong River Delta. Depending on the purpose of the survey, we distribute questions into one or a number of the following regions:
|Red River Delta||North Central|
|South Central Coast||Central Highlands|
|Southeast||Mekong River Delta|
Vietnam is one of the most populous countries in the Asia Pacific region with an estimated population of nearly 95 million. Compared to the population composition, the ratio of panelists in the 40+ age range is small which may prove to be a challenge in collecting the data. Data collection and response rate for older panelists depend on the location and schedule. For this reason, we recommend checking the feasibility of the survey in advance by using our FREE IR Check tool.

When targeting or allocating by income, it is common to design the survey according to the SEC.
*SEC is the socioeconomic category that a consumer falls into as defined by variables such as income, educational background, occupation and so on. It stands for Social Economic Classification.

Local Pro Tip:
In Vietnam, there are many ways to address others and yourself. For example, Vietnamese words such as minh, toi, to, and tui all mean 'I' or 'me', but with different contexts. You will need to pay attention to age and gender to use the right word to address yourself and others.
