Death registration coverage is under-registered in developing countries. The aim of this study is to investigate the coverage of death registration in Iran during the period 1996 to 2016. The data include population data from the 1996 to 2016 censuses and the current registered death data during the same period. After evaluation of the population and death data, the death registration coverage has been estimated. The death registration coverage coefficients have been estimated using the Extended Synthetic Extinct Generations method for different age ranges by sex and for the three periods of 1996 to 2006, 2006 to 2011 and 2011 to 2016 in the whole country. The average adult death registration coverage coefficients in the mentioned periods were estimated at 76.7 to 78.9, 86.2 to 88.8, and 87.7 to 89.9 for men and 71.7 to 72.5, 79.2 to 80.9, and 82.8 to 84.6 for women, respectively. The results show that although the death registration data have less registration error, these data can be corrected and can be used to directly estimate mortality indicators by age and sex and to identify the trend and level of mortality in the country.
