Child birth registration and monitoring is a vital first step towards guaranteeing lifelong protection and securing an identity. It's a step towards promoting children's right to birth registration which clearly falls within UNICEF's mandate. The benefits of child registration is not only limited to the childhood period of a child, in adulthood, birth certificates gotten from birth registration may be needed for many purposes, such as: to obtain social security or a job in the formal sector; to buy or prove the right to inherit property; to obtain identity cards; to vote; and to obtain a passport, especially in Nigeria. Due to this fact, the lack of a birth certificate can have a grave, cumulative, negative effect on people's life opportunities. Several researchers have developed systems that carry out birth registration, but none of them were able to develop a system that monitors the rate of increase or decrease of the rate of birth in a particular region. In this work, an improved model for birth rate monitoring information system in Nigeria that eliminate the inefficiencies of the existing systems have been developed, and produced accurate monitoring results. Tools such as homogenous database, automated Centralized system, were used and the result of the records search was displayed in a user-friendly interface for the users to access. We adopted the Structured System Analysis and Design Methodology (SSADM) for this approach. The system was implemented using Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP), JavaScript and MySQL as the Backend. The result shows accurate birth rate monitoring with a performance evaluation of 86% as superior to the existing system with an accuracy of 66%. This system will be beneficial to: The Federal Bureau of Statistics (FBS), to Federal Government of Nigeria, to NIMC, to Educational bodies such as WAEC, NECO, JAMB, to tertiary institutions and Security Forces and to any other organization that deals on child registration.
