TAGS

Congratulations to Tonga on their launch of their latest Vital Statistics report! This is Tonga's fourth Vital Statistics report, following its predecessors from 2003, 2004, and the previous one covering the years 2013–2018. 

Looking ahead, the launch of this report sets the stage for the regular compilation of annual analytical reports. This ongoing effort will ensure a continuous supply of vital statistics, enabling Tonga to adapt and respond to evolving demographic patterns and health indicators. The commitment to regular reporting reflects Tonga's dedication to utilizing data-driven approaches for sustainable development and underscores the importance of CRVS in shaping the nation's future.

Statistics presented in the report can be used by the Government of Tonga and other government entities, to provide evidence to inform decisions on health policy and planning, and to evaluate the effectiveness of programs for the benefit of the people of Tonga.

Summary fact sheet of the report can be found on this link and the full document can be found here.
