The Registration of Vital Events in Oregon


The registration of vital events in Oregon, namely the recording of the facts associated with live births, deaths, fetal deaths, marriages, divorces and related occurrences, is a key public health function within Oregon’s Center for Health Statistics.

Registration means the process by which vital records are completed, filed and incorporated into the official records of the Center for Health Statistics. This process is governed by Oregon Revised Statute and Administrative Rule.
