Addressing the Gender Issues in Philippine CRVS

  2. 2. Republic of the Philippines Philippine Statistics Authority Uses of Civil Registration Documents • Civil registration is an ideal source of statistics on important demographic processes such as fertility, mortality and nuptiality, which in turn, are the basic information needed for monitoring population growth. • While there are other sources of these data, like population censuses and demographic sample surveys, the statistical advantages of a comprehensive civil registration system over these other sources are as follows: • Civil registration generates records which are relatively free from certain types of response errors and are not subject to sampling error; • It provides statistical data continuously for planning, administrative and research at geographic or administrative levels that are not readily available from other sources; • It is relatively inexpensive because these statistics are a by-product of an administrative process; and • It provides an inventory of events which can be evaluated against other records such as census data, and can also be used as basis for more intensive studies on fertility, mortality and morbidity.
  3. 3. Republic of the Philippines Philippine Statistics Authority Vital Statistics Produced for CR Documents Number of data items that can be disaggregated by sex: • Birth Document – more or less 20 data items • Marriage Document – more or less 12 data items • Death Documents – more or less 27 data items
  4. 4. Republic of the Philippines Philippine Statistics Authority Main Issues • Delays in producing the vital statistics due to delay submission of documents from the local civil registrars to the Philippine Statistics Authority; thus, affecting the computation of IMR and MMR, tabulation of information and special releases • Typographical errors in the entry of “Sex” in any of the civil registry documents; thus, the quality of data released is also affected.
  5. 5. Republic of the Philippines Philippine Statistics Authority Possible Solution • Revision of the Civil Registration Law (RA No. 3753) wherein the local civil registrars will be directly under the PSA; to date, the LCRs are just under the technical supervision of the PSA. • If the law will be revised, then the modernization of the LCRO can be done like computerization of the registration and linking to the CRS-ITP2 in order to facilitate the early submission of the CR documents; accuracy of entries in the birth, marriage and death documents; etc. • Right now, there is an on-going discussion between the PSA and lawmakers for the revision of the Civil Registration Law. • Facilitation of the premium annotation of birth (with errors in name/sex/month and date of birth, marriage (with errors in name of husband and/or wife) and death (with errors in the name of the deceased person) documents.
