The Vital statistics system on causes of death is the main source for the evaluation of the health status of the population, and for the health programmes and resources allocation. Data on causes of all deaths occurring in Italy during a calendar year are collected by the death certificates ISTAT/D.4, D.5, D.4 bis and D.5 bis. The physician must fill out the health section of the certificate (part A) and the civil status officer of the appurtenant municipality must fill out the demographic section of the certificate (part B).
