Vital statistics are perhaps the most widely used national, state, and local data for identifying & addressing public health issues. The existence of a national system of the registration of vital events depends on a cooperative relationship between the states & federal government. The impetus for the use of vital records as the basis of a public health data system came from the realization that records of births & deaths, particularly records of deaths by cause of death, could provide information needed for the control of epidemics and prevention of mortality through sanitary reform. Join us for an interactive learning event to gain better understanding of the current state of our national system, and challenges to collecting & sharing of these data.
