Statistics & Reports
Access statistics and reports produced by the Vital Statistics Agency, including B.C.'s most popular baby names, annual reports, quarterly digests, and marriage reports.
Each year, the Vital Statistics Agency compiles a list of the most popular baby names from the birth registrations received that year. The list includes every given name that was chosen five or more times.
Quarterly Digests provide vital event statistics broken into three-month spans.
Marriage reports provide the number of marriages that take place yearly in B.C. Statistics are divided into local health authorities and are available from 2007 to the current year.
The Adoption Statistics table provides data from adoptions registered in British Columbia between 1996 and 2016. Statistics provided for this period include the number of adoptions registered in B.C., disclosure vetoes and no contact declarations filed, and records released from 1996 to 2016.
