Abstract

This paper introduces a free and new database that provides financial analysts and researchers a comprehensive assessment of the performance of the Vietnamese banking system. This database provides statistics on the activity and efficiency of 432 bank-year observations for Vietnamese banks during the 2002-2015 period. This is the first systematic compilation of data on the split of state vs. private ownership, list vs. non-listed banks and foreign vs. domestic banks. Consequently, this arrives at a unique set of variables and indicators that allows capturing the development and performance of the Vietnamese banking sector over time along many different dimensions.

Keywords: database, Vietnam, bank, efficiency, performance
