Full image birth records are only available for births filed before 2008. Full image birth records are created by copying the original paper or microfilm birth record from the hospital or amended birth record.
For births filed before 2008, full image records include more data than computer issued records. Computer issued records do not include some data such as time of birth, name of hospital or birthing facility, mother’s address, parents’ dates of birth or ages and certifier signatures. (This data is not currently included in the database and cannot be issued electronically.)

Since 2008, most birth records are filed and generated electronically. The birth certificates include all the data filed at the time of birth (time of birth, name of hospital or birthing facility, mother’s address, parents’ dates of birth or ages and certifier signatures).
A few states issue a public record of birth and a longer version for identity and other legal purposes. In those states, some DMV and Passport agencies may mistake Oregon’s short form birth record as a public record and reject it.
