* Provisional tabulations for births represent the collective events of Illinois residents who have a record on file in the Illinois Vital Records System (IVRS). Although all birth events that occur in Illinois are required to be registered within seven days, provisional tallies of birth certificates may be inaccurate for any of the following reasons: incomplete certificate information, late filing (e.g., some home births), reports or records not yet received for Illinois residents whose mothers gave birth while outside of Illinois, duplicate records filed, and other ongoing record and/or data clean-up processes. In general, the tallies for the most recent periods are less accurate compared to the eventual final numbers, once all reporting and record clean-up processes are complete, and the calendar year birth file is closed for statistical purposes.
