Nigeria to get database of births, deaths soon – NPC

The National Population Commission has commenced digitising birth, death and other vital registrations across the country in its quest to ensure preservation of important data that will assist government in planning and policy formulations.

NPC Commissioner in charge of Oyo State and Chairman, Civil and Vital Registration Statistics Committee, Tayo Oyetunji disclosed this yesterday in Lokoja at the flag-off  of a four-day “Finalisation and Report Production workshop for 2014 and 2015 scanned vital registration forms,” organised for departmental heads in the vital registration unit of the commission.

He said since the universal registration of births and deaths began in Nigeria in 1988, the process had been done by the commission manually thus resulting in loss and missing of vital data.

According to him, the commission has so far been able to convert all the vital registration forms for 2014 and 2015 across the country from analogue to digital format while plans are on to also convert the analogue vital registration forms from 2004 up till date.
