Guidelines and Template for Developing a Vital Statistics Report

The purpose of this document is to serve as a guidance tool for producing vital statistics reports from civil registration systems. It is intended especially for countries that have little or no prior experience with preparing such reports. The tool may also serve as a standardized approach for regional and international reporting. The tool has two parts:
I. Part one: guidelines that explain how the template may be used and provide support when
writing a vital statistics report
II. Part two: a template outline for a vital statistics report, with specifications on what should be
included.
