Quick Reference

The formal procedure of recording and notifying death has been a statutory legal requirement in most organized jurisdictions for more than 100 years. The details are contained in the death certificate. This is a legal document, as well as the source of tabulated data on causes of death. In developing countries, registration usually begins on a trial basis in one or more defined districts and extends to the rest of the country as resources expand to permit this.
