The Idaho Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics maintains birth and death records filed from July 1911 to the present, and marriage and divorce records filed from May 1947 to the present. Some counties may have older birth, death, marriage, or divorce records in their files, but county files contain only records of vital events that occurred in that county.
The Idaho Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics does not have a public counter.
Current Registration, Legal Actions, and Client Services are responsible for the registration, documentation, correction, and amendment of vital events, including birth, death, marriage, paternity actions, adoption, and divorce. Field Operations investigates irregularities and violations of the Vital Statistics Act and offers registration instruction to system participants.
Vital Records Management is responsible for the management of the computer data base which contains vital records information. It is also responsible for the assurance of proper coding and data input that supports Vital Records Services and the generation of vital statistics. Field Operations addresses quality of records through computer training and the provision of technical assistance to system participants.
Health Statistics Section provides biostatistical research and analysis of data from systems such as Vital Statistics and population-based surveys such as the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) and the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Tracking Survey (PRATS). Numerous reports and publications are produced and disseminated, including the Idaho Vital Statistics Annual Report.
