Regional Differences in Attitudes toward Prostitution in Vietnam as Mediated through Political Orientation and Education

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

It is documented that the vast majority of Vietnamese believe prostitution is never justified; however, given the historical divide of Vietnam, it is unknown whether these attitudes vary by region. This study considers the importance of the social context in understanding perceptions toward prostitution through examining whether there are regional differences in attitudes toward prostitution in Vietnam and whether this relationship is mediated by political orientation as well as by education. Data from Wave 5 of the World Values Survey 2006 on Vietnam, a nationally representative survey of adults, is used to explore these relationships. The results from the multivariate logistic regression show that both political orientation and education are found to significantly mediate the relationship of region and attitude towards prostitution. There is a significant difference in attitudes toward prostitution between North and South Vietnam through differences in political orientation and education level between regions. This research demonstrates the importance of taking mediating effects into account in order to understand intra-national differences in attitudes toward prostitution in Vietnam.
