International Institute for Vital Registration and Statistics
The national registration system of the United States is of relatively recent origin. It had a modest be- ginning in 1900 when the death registration system was started with 10 States and the District of Columbia. The birth registration system began in 191 5. As the States were qualified, they were added to the registration areas. In 1933, all the States were included in the birth and death registration areas. This historical development should be of interest to the developing countries concerned with gradually increasing the population coverage of their civil registration system.
