TAGS

Due to the virtual nature of the Statistical Commission this year, there was no discussion on Demographic Statistics, where the issue of CRVS is normally debated. Several States did however, submit written statements on the issue, those can be accessed on the UNSD website.

Nevertheless, the Commission held multiple CRVS-related side events, including a 26 February side event entitled UN Legal Identity Agenda: Implementation during the Pandemic. Presentations and the recording of the session are available online.

Other side events included: A New Collaborative on the Use of Administrative Data for Statistical Purposes; and How the COVID-19 Pandemic Changed the World for Children.
