Registration of Vital Events In Iraq


Iraq is one of the countries where the birth and death registration function is in the Ministry of Health. The primary responsibility for registration is in the hands of the attendant at birth or the medical attendant of the deceased. In the event that there was no attendant at birth, the parents or relatives must report the birth. In case of death without medical attention, the nearest health office is to be notified by the relatives of the deceased, or the report must be made by the mayor with two witnesses.

Registration of births and deaths in Iraq is deficient. In order to provide a valid measure of population change, a sample registration system was put into operation in 1973. This supplemental source of data has also provided a measure of under registration of births and deaths which are referred to in this report.

The article covers the registration procedure and functions of registrars in Iraq.

The article is technical report No. 10 of the International Institute for Vital Registration and Statistics (IIVRS), published in 1980.
