The Development of the Vital Statistics System in Egypt


Egypt has a long history of registration activities dating back to antiquity. The modern registration era is said to go back to 1839, the year when the first report of the Registrar General of England and Wales was issued. In this technical paper, General Gamal Askar traces the development of civil registration in Egypt in recent history, and describes how national vital statistics are produced.

Egypt is one of the small group of countries where the local health administration has responsibility for the collection of vital statistics data. The manner in which these health bureaus, the civil registration offices of the Ministry of Interior, and the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics work to produce national vital statistics for Egypt is one of the subjects of this paper.

The article is technical report No. 13 of the International Institute for Vital Registration and Statistics (IIVRS), published in 1981.
