Vital statistics include records dealing with births, marriages, stillbirths and deaths; all events which have to do with an individual's entrance or departure from life, together with changes in civil status. Live births are defined by a complete expulsion or extraction from the mother, irrespective of the duration of the pregnancy, of a fetus in which, after expulsion or extraction, there is breathing, beating of the heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord or definite movement of a voluntary muscle. Gestation is the time between the conception and birth of an infant, the usual length being 40 weeks.
