VS (Vital Statistics - Birth Database)

Description

This is an administrative survey that collects demographic information annually from all provincial and territorial vital statistics registries on all live births in Canada. 2017 birth and stillbirth data for Yukon are not available. Due to improvements in methodology and timeliness, the duration of data collection has been shortened compared to previous years. As a result, there may have been fewer births and stillbirths captured by the time of the release. The 2017 data are therefore considered preliminary.
