Low Earnings Disparities for Different Education Levels in Vietnam

CEIC Macro Watch - February 28, 2014 - Average monthly earnings disparities between different education level groups have narrowed somewhat in Vietnam. While university graduates can expect to earn 93.83% more than those without any qualification as of the third quarter of 2013 (compared to 92.39% in the same quarter of the previous year), higher monthly earnings among workers with some intermediate qualifications (vocational to college levels) have somewhat narrowed the earnings gaps between those with different qualifications. While intermediate qualification levels have helped to reduce earnings disparities, the reduced access of women to intermediate education means that wage disparities between male and female workers have not significantly narrowed; this has been further exacerbated by higher proportions of male workers in managerial and leadership positions (74.62% as of the third quarter of 2013).
