Vital Events Data and Statistics

Vital records (certificates) are filed with and maintained by the NJDOH Office of Vital Statistics and Registry (OVSR).  The Center for Health Statistics (CHS), along with OVSR and the National Center for Health Statistics, performs data quality checks on the electronic files of these records.  CHS geocodes the residence address data to assign census tract, block, and group and latitude and longitude information as well as to correct invalid residence address information.  The data are then analyzed and disseminated by CHS via the methods listed under Accessing Data on the right.
