Abstract

Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is the biggest and richest city in Vietnam with the population of over 7 million people. This study combines the HCMC Mid-Census 2004 and panel data from the Vietnam Household Living Standard Surveys 2004 and 2006 to produce poverty maps for HCMC's districts in 2006 using a method of small area estimation. It is found that the poverty incidence is very high in the rural districts. However, the poverty density is higher in the urban districts, since these districts have much higher population density.
