Description text:

Civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems and legal identity systems have become increasingly recognized as catalytic both for inclusive development and for monitoring population dynamics spanning the entire life course. This collection of papers showcases demographic methods and population perspectives that are becoming critical for the progressive strengthening and ongoing maintenance of robust civil registration and vital statistics systems. The series provides new insights on the registration of births, marriages, separations/divorces, deaths and legal residency, and discusses emerging challenges and future research directions on CRVS systems for the population science community.
