Comprehensive Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Assessment

Author:World Health Organization
Description:The Comprehensive Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Assessment tools guide the country in a standards-based review of the national CRVS system. This comprehensive assessment is a detailed tool that includes guidance for a comprehensive review (building on the rapid assessment) and developing a roadmap for strengthening weak areas. The aim is to help responsible authorities obtain a clear and comprehensive understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of their CRVS systems and generate the evidence base for corrective action. These tools are largely directed at countries with an established civil registration but with some inadequacies. (The tools do not assess vital statistics obtained from household surveys, censuses, and sample registration.)
