This survey is based on the Global Corruption Barometer’s methodology of Transparency International (TI), which was conducted in Vietnam in 2011, 2013, and 2016. Data were collected in July and August 2019 through direct interviews with 1,085 people in 19 representative provinces and cities across the country. Qualitative interviews were also conducted in November 2019 to better understand people’s views and experiences.
