Data are taken from The Vietnam Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) by the General Statistics Office of Vietnam, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The main finding of this study in Vietnam is consistent with other studies in the world about mother’s education and children health. The result of this study in Vietnam showed that mother’s education is an important factor of the health of children.
