Expert Group Meeting on International Standards for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics

New York
27 - 30 June, 2011

DESA┐s Statistics Division is organizing an Expert Group Meeting on International Standards for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics, which will review the Principles and Recommendations for a Vital Statistics System, Rev. 2, published in 2001 by the UN (UN publication, Sales No. E.01.XVII.10).

The essential standard which the Principles and Recommendations promulgates - generating accurate, reliable and regular vital statistics from civil registration system - remains unchanged and valid. However, over the past 10 years several issues emerged that might require revisions and updates of the principles and recommendations, such as the increasing use of population registers as source of vital statistics, advances in modern technologies that have helped some countries in accelerating the improvement of their civil registration and vital statistics systems, and the development of statistical systems in countries.

The meeting will review the Principles and Recommendations for updates and elaborations and propose an outline for the next revision of the recommendations.
