WHO WE ARE

The National Association for Public Health Statistics and Information Systems (NAPHSIS) is the national nonprofit organization representing the state vital records and public health statistics offices in the United States. Formed in 1933, NAPHSIS brings together more than 250 public health professionals from each state, the five territories, New York City, and the District of Columbia.

OUR VISION

A healthier and more secure world through vital records

OUR MISSION

To serve the vital records community by providing national leadership to advance public health and protect individual identity.

PROTECTING IDENTITY

Vital records offices register births and deaths and issue certified copies of birth and death certificates for legal and administrative purposes. At some point, each of us will need to use a birth certificate to prove our identity. Vital records offices provide these legal documents to you through a careful and secure process that helps prevent identity theft and other fraudulent acts.

PROMOTING PUBLIC HEALTH

Birth and death records contain more than just your legal name and the date of your birth. These records also include valuable health information used to plan and evaluate public health programs and measure the health of our populace. When you hear about the latest teen pregnancy rates or read about the number of cancer and heart disease deaths in your community, vital records are the source.
