Directorate of Civil Registry in the State
Explanation:
I prefer to use Civil Registry rather than Vital Statistics, which is common in the US, also Directorate, which could be translated as Department, etc. but I use Directorate.

"In the State" seems strange, because it normally applies to ofices of federal agencies in a state, and "Registro Civil" is normally under state jurisdiction in Mexico. But that is how it should be translated.
