Skehard Road, Cork
Every birth occurring in Ireland must be registered with the General Register Office. The details of these birth registrations are compiled into statistical reports by the Central Statistics Office, acting on behalf of the Department of Health and Children.
Statistics on births registered in Ireland have been collected and published since 1864.
They provide a comprehensive picture of the number of births, and the demographic details of the parents. They are crucial for demographic research, and are also used in health research and social research.
