TAGS

To leverage the use of administrative data for statistical purposes, the National Statistics Bureau has published a Vital Statistics Report using data maintained by the Department of Civil Registration and Census under the Ministry of Home and Cultural Affairs. This is the first report of its kind using civil registration data in the country. The report provides detailed statistics on births, deaths and registration completeness, as well as other related statistics for the year 2019 and prior.
The report is part of the commitment Bhutan made for the Asian and Pacific CRVS Decade, 2015-2024, to strengthen the CRVS system in the country to Get Every one in the Picture. The commitment, stewardship by national authorities, and trust and collaboration of stakeholders have all enabled the publication of this report.
The report can be downloaded here.
