Vital Statistics for Spaniards residing abroad covers deaths, marriages and births that affect Spaniards outside the country.
They are obtained by means of recording information contained in the Central Civil Registry consulates registry books. These books are formed with the duplicates of consular civil register registrations that are sent periodically to the said central civil register.
Data on deliveries or late fetal deaths did not exist. In the first case because the necessary information could not be obtained from the births registration book and in the second case because in consulates an abortions file which is the administrative source that is used does not exist.
Since 2004 this statistic has not been compiled.
