New zealand birth death marriage index

This bill updates the Act, which provides the overarching framework that governs how information on births, deaths, marriages, and civil unions is registered in this country. It aims to provide more timely access to birth and death information, and rapid access to historical records in the digital age. Having spent over a decade in child and youth health research, I was a frequent user of births, deaths, and marriages information.

One of the biggest issues we had was timeliness, because it was often a two-year lag between when somebody had passed away and when we could access the death registration data. Also, for birth registrations, it was often several months—up to six months—before we could access that information. Also, just things like some of the deaths from child abuse, and with the intense interventions that we've been doing within the health sector, thinking about whether that was having any impact—because it's the ability to tailor what you're doing to what you see in the data, and that's not really possible in the current situation.

The other thing we had with the delays in the birth registration data was we couldn't really assess how many births were happening each year, and so it was often difficult when we were trying to calculate accurate infant mortality rates—again, key to some of our monitoring. So what this bill says is that a preliminary notice of birth has to be provided to the Registrar-General within five working days following a birth, and a preliminary notice of death has to be provided by the doctor within three working days of giving a death certificate, thereby creating some more streamlining in the process.

A lot of the changes in this respect address the recommendations of the Law Commission review into deaths, burial, and cremation. So it's a fairly evidence-based approach; it's been based on a very, very thorough review of the area. If issue living, state ages of each, and sex. Place and date of marriage.
