The magnitude of the task ahead -- and the extent of progress to date -- is reflected in statistics derived from the new Hamlet Evaluation system implemented in January. Tentative results of this new system reveal that of 12,000 hamlets in South Vietnam, roughly one-third are controlled by the Viet Cong, and government influence is marginal to negligible in another third. Real progress toward pacification and nation-building goals exists only in 14 percent of the hamlets, and only fair progress is reflected in another 25 percent. These figures include about 500 hamlets added to the "secure" category last year. About 1,100 hamlets are scheduled for development by RD teams this year, and a few hundred others may have their status improved through ad hoc local arrangements.
