Cambodia completes survey to establish national baselines on CRVS
TAGS

Cambodia has completed a national baseline survey on the status of CRVS. The survey provides key benchmark data to monitor the country's progress towards achieving the targets set in its National Strategic Plan for Identification as well as under the Regional Action Framework. The results can also be used to understand which factors contribute towards inequality in registration thanks to the disaggregated nature of the data.

Conducted in October and November of 2016 with the financial support of UNICEF, the survey involved 22 416 respondents in four provinces and the capital Phnom Penh. According to the sample, 89.7% of Cambodians have had their birth registered. Encouragingly, the registration rate of children under 5 sits at 78.0%, 4.7 percentage points higher than the same figure estimated in 2014 by the Cambodia Demographic and Health survey. The report also makes several recommendations on how to improve the CRVS system, particularly with regards to the registration of groups exposed to vulnerability factors.
