        incorporating GIS variables
      - Construction of precise expenditure/income
        equations
      - Construction of poverty maps for Vietnam

                        III. Key activities:

1. Collect survey and census data:
 - Survey data: Latest survey is in 2006
 - Census data: Latest census is Rural
   Agriculture and Fishery Census in 2006.
   This census covers only rural population
   and agriculture household in urban area.
2. Preparation of STATA or SPSS files
- All data files are available in STATA format

-

                            III. Key activities:
3. Identification of common variables and matching:
 - Households specific variables: demographic, land,
   housing and assets, type of economic activities,
   education, occupation and employment...
 - It should be noted that questionnaire in general is not
   the same between census and survey. Some
   variables need to be redefined to be comparable.
 - Matching: Administrative codes are completely
   different between census and survey.
        This task is time consuming since the manual
   recoding at lowest level should be done for around 10
   thousand communes

                         III. Key activities:

4. Preparation of GIS data files
 - Data on GIS variables need to be collected in
   the year corresponding to the year of census
   and survey data.
 - Main variables would be: Elevation, slope,
   roads, number of markets, number of
   school/university/health care center, climate
   (rainfall, temperature, humidity...), ect
5. Weekly reporting whole team progress to staffs
   of GIC

6. Invitation letters
  It will be sent to GIC staff as soon as we
  complete the construction of datasets.
  The date of visit is preferred to be around second
  week after New Year but it should be agreed with
  the GIC staffs.

                        III. Key activities:
7. Working in-country with staffs:
  - Detailed schedule will be sent to GIC staffs
    before country visit. Hands on training is
    necessary during implementation at all steps
8. Pick up activities from the first presentation that
    we need to complete:
  - Understanding of questionnaires in both census
    and survey
  - Select and compare common variables from
    census and survey
  - Collect GIS variables
  - Matching codes between census and survey

                                                         affairs
                        III. Key activities:


9. Other relevant activities:
- Getting permission on accessing both census
  and survey data
- Updating the latest version of map shape file
  for spatial demonstration of poverty rates at
  all level of aggregation
- Matching codes between data files and map
  shape file


                                         Institute of labor science and social
    General statistics office
                                                         affairs
    IV. Constraints to complete the activities

   Access to data requires permission from data
    providing agency (GSO), fair amount of fund
    would be needed for data purchase
   Code matching manually takes much time
   It is still controversial whether poverty
    analysis should be based on income or
    expenditure approach. As opposed to
    Worldbank approach, the government
    prefers using income to calculate poverty
    measures
                                  Institute of labor science and social
      General statistics office
                                                  affairs
    V. Proposed working arrangement
   Poverty mapping team is set up which includes staffs
    from GSO and ILSSA.
   Technical supports would be provided by experts from
    GIC.
   Each member works independently on the specific tasks
    allocated. It is expected that two members will work on
    same task and share/compare the outputs to each other.
   All members will gather every week to discuss on the
    outputs. During the implementation, technical assistance
    from GIC staffs is needed in terms of providing instruction
    and comments.
   Besides, communication among members would mostly
    be via email.

                 6. Communication

   The poverty mapping team will maintain
    the frequent contact with GIC staffs via
    email.
   It is expected that for every three weeks
    GIC staffs will write a summary report on
    the progress of the work done by the
    team and suggestion for the next step.
