Prior to 1919, birth and death records were collected by a variety of institutions which were not health-related, including counties and churches. For the most part these statistics are not currently available from Vital Records and Health Statistics.
Today, Vital Records receives its data from hospitals, midwives, funeral directors, physicians, the Office of the Medical Investigator (OMI), tribal authorities and other sources. New Mexico data is shared with the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) in order to assess the health of the United States.
