On the 26th of September 2023, Fiji Bureau of Statistics launched two landmark CRVS Reports: The Fiji Vital Statistics Report 2016-2021 and the Report on Assessing Inequalities in Birth and Death Registration in Fiji.

The Fiji Vital Statistics Report 2016-2021 is the culmination of five years of meticulous data collection, analysis and collaboration which captures the vital events that have shaped Fiji’s society during this period. The development of the vital statistics report was supported by Vital Strategies, University of New South Wales and partners of the Brisbane Accord Group. For a snapshot of the main findings, you may find the highlights here.  

Fiji is also one of the first countries to have embarked on an in-depth quantitative civil registration inequality assessment report, as part of ESCAP’s regional support for implementing CRVS inequality assessments and strengthening demographic capacity. The report examines differentials in birth and death registration by sex, age, ethnicity and mother’s marital status. Information obtained from this assessment will be used to inform future research and policy interventions to bridge gaps in registration between different population groups in the country. One of the key policy findings from the inequality assessment is the significant and positive impact that financial incentives had on birth registration in Fiji, which are reported in an associated policy brief.  

Congratulations to the Fiji Bureau of Statistics (FBoS), Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Health and Medical Services and all of the national CRVS stakeholders in Fiji who led and contributed to these two reports.
