It deals primarily with events that affect the civil status of the individual. Such events’ include births, deaths, stillbirths, marriages, annulment of marriages, foundings, naturalization, etc.

The laws of most countries, including Nigeria, make the recording of these events’ compulsory. The statistics generated from the exercise is referred to as ‘Vital Statistics’. These events are referred to as "Vital" because they have to do with the individual's entry into, and the individual's entry into, and departure out of life, with the changes in civil status in his/her lifetime.
