Workshop on the Principles and recommendations for a vital statistics system, Revision 3, for Caribbean countries
01-12-2015 – 04-12-2015 Port of Spain
The United Nations Statistics Division is conducting the United Nations Workshop on the Principles and Recommendations for a Vital Statistics System, Revision 3, for Caribbean Countries, to be held in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, from 1 to 4 December 2015.
This is the first opportunity for Caribbean national statistical authorities to learn about the latest version of these major methodological guidelines and standards, issued last year. In addition, the workshop will bring together civil registrars and statisticians, thus offering an opportunity for establishing a much closer cooperation at the national level. The workshop is conducted in collaboration with OAS, CARRICOM and Regional ECLAC Office. The previous workshop on the same topic was conducted in 2005, thus providing an opportunity to assess the progress made in improving civil registration and vital statistics along the line of international standards in the ten year period for the fifteen participating Caribbean countries.
