The Births and Deaths Statistics Report contains information on the births and deaths occurring in Timor-Leste in 2014-2015. In addition to these vital statistics, the report also contains an overview of Timor-Leste's CRVS system, coordination efforts between different government ministries, legal issues regarding CRVS, a comparison of the Ministry of Health's registration information with the General Directorate of Statistics' information, as well as recommendations for improvement.

The Births and Deaths Statistics Report was written by the General Directorate of Statistics (GDS) of the Government of Timor-Leste with the support of UNFPA and the UNESCAP Statistics Division. In particular, the report benefited from the two workshops held by UNESCAP and the Bloomberg Data for Health Initiative (D4H) of the project to improve the capacity of national Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) systems in the production and dissemination of vital statistics.
