Vital Records is an essential activity of every public health agency. The data compiled is used in analysis of health trends, needs and problems in health education, in program planning, evaluation and in other areas. The goal of the Davidson County Vital Statistics Program is to carry out the statutory requirements regarding Vital Statistics in order to ensure that complete and accurate vital records are available for future analysis.
The Health Director serves as the local registrar with one Deputy Registrar and two assistant Deputy Registrars as back-up.
