The objective of this study is to synthesise the findings from a large number of studies that have used medical record reviews to validate the COD reported on the death certificate or through the vital registration system. Based on an analysis of a core set of these studies, we developed a methodological framework for medical record reviews for countries to follow for routinely validating their CODs.
