According to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), birth and death information is an important source of statistical data for identifying public health problems, monitoring progress in public health, informing the allocation of research and prevention funds, and conducting scientific research. For these reasons, complete, accurate, and standardized reporting of vital events is critical.

Therefore, before completing vital event data in Missouri, review the comprehensive training and instructional materials made available by the National Center for Health Statistics.
