Vital Statistics

While a primary purpose for collection of vital records is to record information on vital events for legal purposes, vital records files also serve as an important source for statistical information. Vital statistics data developed from these records can be accessed through the links below for the full range of vital events including births, deaths, marriages and divorces. Basic counts for the number of events, rates and detailed cross tabulations are provided. Statistical information for Michigan with national comparisons are included along with extensive data at the county and community level.

County and State Health Statistics Profiles
Profiles of county and state vital events statistics are presented in a one page summary form for each county and the state as a whole. The profiles contain those data most often requested of the Vital Records & Health Statistics Section.
