Vital statistics are the compilation and analysis of information collected from vital event records reported in Oregon. Oregon’s Center for Health Statistics is responsible for compiling and analyzing the data from these vital records.
Some of the most important information about the health of Oregonians comes from vital records, such as leading causes of death, low birth weight babies, and mother's access to prenatal care. Vital records data are used throughout the state and nation for analysis of health trends, program planning, and policy development.
