(Newsletter: CRVS Insight April 2022)
The first national capacity building workshop to strengthen demographic and statistical capacity for assessing inequalities in civil registration was held from 21-25 March 2022 in Suva, Fiji.
The workshop which was convened in a hybrid modality and led by a demography expert, was attended by 29 participants from relevant government agencies involved in the national CRVS system. Throughout the five-day workshop, participants learnt how to assess inequalities in civil registration, with a particular focus on death registration. The instruction sessions and practical exercises were tailored to the national context, using national data, and focused on the measurement of civil registration completeness, assessment of data quality, production of disaggregated estimates for death registration and interpretation of these findings for use in policy-making.
