Excerpt
The U.S. vital registration and statistics system exemplifies cooperation between the Federal and State Government at its best. Even though the legal responsibility for the registration of vital events rests with the individual States, the States and the National Center for Health Statistics (the Federal partner) work together to build a uniform system that produces records to satisfy the legal requirements of individuals and their families and also to meet statistical and research needs at the local, State, and national levels. The cooperation includes the development and promotion of standard certificates and reporting forms, training and quality control programs, and model legislation. This is the fifth revision of the Model State Vital Statistics Act (the first was in 1907) and the second revision of the Model State Vital Statistics Regulations (the first was in 1977). The Model Act and Regulations provide detailed guidance to State registrars of vital statistics and State legislators who are considering revision of their own State vital statistics laws and regulations. The Model Act and Regulations serve to promote uniformity among States in definitions, registration practices, disclosure and issuance procedures, and in many other functions that comprise a State system of vital statistics. A major goal of this revision of the Model Act and Regulations is to ensure the vital statistics laws allow States to easily incorporate technological advances in records and information management. Special emphasis was given to the language within the revision in order that it can serve as a model for the next 10-15 years. The wording used will allow States to make use of emerging technology that will continue to impact the vital statistics system without having to change their law. In developing this revision, input was sought not only from State vital records and statistics offices but also from other persons and organizations, including Federal agencies, which have an interest in the registration system either as a source of legal records or a source of statistical data. The expert testimony and comments from these interested persons and organizations provided invaluable assistance in developing the revision and should help guarantee that the vital statistics system continues to serve the interests of its many users, especially the general public.
