CRVS strengthening in China (Shanghai)

The Shanghai municipality is comprised of 16 districts with a total population of 24 million 14 million of whom are permanent residents. The Shanghai Municipal Center for Disease Control (SCDC) surveillance system covers all 16 districts and is responsible for health data collection as well as the death and birth registry.

The Shanghai CDC system is fully computerised and electronically records vital events in real time. Overall, the system is efficient and functional; however, potential areas of data uncertainty include the high proportion of deaths that occur at home (~35%) for which cause of death accuracy has not been determined, and limited capacity in applying critical data quality assessments. Some vital events are also not reported, primarily for infant, elderly and ‘floating’ populations.
