International Institute for Vital Registration and Statistics
Until the establishment of the General Direction of National Register of Population and Personal Identification, civil registration was carried out in Mgxico by the different States which operated autonomously as in any Federated State. The lack of a central agency with powers to direct or coordinate the activities of the various States made it difficult to secure improvements in the system.
The expressed national need for a population register and personal identification system created an almost instant demand for complete and accurate vital records as a basis for updating the system. The new agency faced the immediate task of understanding the present registration organization and mechanism, and evaluating the major features of the system and procedures. Uniform procedures and formats were introduced. Mechanisms were introduced to coordinate the system. Intensive and comprehensive training courses were conducted. The rapidity with which all these reforms were introduced is unique in the annals of civil registration and vital statistics.
