Asia-Pacific Stats Café: Harnessing civil registration records for vital statistics

Event Details

Since the beginning of the Asia-Pacific CRVS Decade, multiple countries in the region have embarked on using civil registration records for the production of vital statistics reports, which is one of the targets of the Regional Action Framework on CRVS in Asia and the Pacific.
To support countries in this endeavour, ESCAP and other partners have been providing technical assistance and developed tools facilitating the calculation, analysis and presentation of vital statistics, including the revision of the Guide for the Production of a Vital Statistics Report released in December 2020. Nevertheless, at least 17 countries in the region have yet to use civil registration records for producing vital statistics.
This Stats Café session will highlight the experiences of Georgia, Bhutan and Fiji to discuss their experiences of developing their vital statistics report. The Stats Café will be held 24 May 13.00-14.00 (GMT+7).
