In 1898, the state of Utah began requiring physicians and midwives to record each birth where they were present or assisted. In the absence of a midwife or doctor, the parents were required to report the birth on their own. While this increased the number of births reported in Utah during this time, there is no way to know if all births really were officially documented. Births were supposed to be reported on a quarterly basis to the county clerk or to the local board of health, who would then report it to the county clerk. By 1905, Utah had a new law requiring each county to file a uniform birth certificate with Utah's State Bureau of Vital Statistics.
