International Institute for Vital Registration and Statistics
After independence in 1951, the Goverrnnent of Libya made great efforts to develop a nationwide civil registration system with complete coverage of births and deaths. By the early 1980s, birth registration was fairly close to being complete whereas death registration was still only about two-thirds complete. Although there was sane deterioration in the systm during 1982 and 1983 (followed by gradual improvement since then), complete coverage of births and deaths appears to be a reachable goal during the present decade. However, the quality of data still needs substantial improvement, particularly in regard to eliminating the high incidence of non-response on a number of important items. Recommendations for remedying the conditions inhibiting the improvement of the Libyan civil registration system are presented by the author.
