About the Health Statistics Center


The Health Statistics Center (HSC) is a division of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, Bureau for Public Health.

The HSC has two main Divisions.

The Vital Registration Office was first created by law in 1917. In 1978, the HSC was formed by executive proclamation of the Governor to encompass both Vital Registration and Statistical Services. The Statistical Services Program was formed from the addition of new employees and the incorporation of those in Vital Registration who had been responsible for data management and statistics. In 2008, Statistical Services expanded to include a chronic disease epidemiology unit responsible for conducting disease surveillance and program evaluation for public health programs addressing chronic disease, tobacco prevention, and minority health issues in West Virginia.
