TAGS

On 28 March 2022, the Guidelines for estimating completeness of civil registration of vital events were launched during an  Asia-Pacific Stats Café, organized by the Statistics Division of ESCAP. During this Stats Café, countries shared their experiences of estimating completeness of vital events registration, in addition to discussing the way forward. Please find the recording of the session here.

These Guidelines and accompanying materials have been prepared to support national statistical offices, ministries of health, and other relevant government and non-government agencies to better estimate the completeness of civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems, in particular, the completeness of birth and death registration. This was in response to findings from the mid-term review and accompanying technical report of progress, which showed that despite significant progress made by countries in the region, one of the challenges that remains is countries’ capacity to evaluate the completeness of their civil registration systems.
