Abstract

This paper examines whether interethnic marriage of parents is associated with educational performance of children in Vietnam using data from the 2009 Population and Housing Census. It finds that interethnic marriage of parents is associated with educational attainment of children in Vietnam. Children with parents from different ethnic groups tend to have better education and lower disability incidence than children with parents from one ethnic minority group.
