Georgia published its first vital statistics report based on civil registration records. The report discusses the availability of vital statistics data, its quality and linkages to the existing registration system of civil acts. The recent data analysis of births, deaths, marriages and divorces are also presented in the document, with the aim to inform data users about the data collection and analysis methods used for obtaining vital statistics in Georgia.
The report was drafted by the National Statistics Office of Georgia (Geostat) with the support of ESCAP. The support from ESCAP was made as part of a project to strengthen the National Capacity in Producing and Disseminating Vital Statistics funded by the Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative.
