An identity of some sort is necessary for almost all daily interactions in developed countries, and is becoming increasingly necessary in many developing nations. To interact with the public sector, it is imperative for an individual to have a legal identity that is anchored in a legally established, standardized, verifiable, and trustworthy source. All countries in the world have such repositories, and they exist either as civil registries or civil identification registers (or both). The 198 countries reviewed in this study have a civil registry and 171 have civil identification registers that issue identity cards. Only 27 lack a civil identification and do not issue identification credentials. And of those 27 countries, four are currently in the process of establishing such systems to uniquely identify citizens and residents.
