1. Azevedo, Felipe Inácio Xavier de. Estimativas de mortalidade infanto-juvenil para as mesorregiões do Brasil para o decênio 2000/2010 .

Degree: 2016, Universidade do Rio Grande do Norte

The sharp decline in mortality rates and improvement in the quality of vital records in Brazil were processes widespread in recent decades, but with significant regional contrasts. Estimates of specific mortality rates in some regions of the country still represent a challenge for demographers. Among the limitations, highlight the high variability in the rates by age and incomplete coverage of vital records. The demographic methods for evaluation and correction of underreporting of deaths at early ages have limited applicability in sub-populations that experienced a rapid and intense destabilization of its age structure, especially in more disaggregated geographical levels. Thus, the objective of this study is to propose indirect estimates for mortality infant-juvenile, 0-14 years, based on adult mortality estimated for the mesoregions of Brazil in the decade 2000/2010. The study data sources are: Human Mortality Database (HMD), Census 2010, Mortality Information System (SIM) and adult mortality estimates for mesoregions of Brazil. Two methodological approaches were employed, both using regression models which presupposes the existence of a strong relationship of infant mortality with adult mortality. Both proposals show mortality patterns with higher levels of mortality infant-juvenile in mesoregions the North and Northeast. The results show that mortality rates estimated by Proposal 2 show, in general, greater heterogeneity among mesoregions the same state, especially among men. Overall, the results point to lower female mortality levels with more homogeneous patterns compared to male mortality. Among the methods employed, the proposed 2 is shows promise for indirect estimates of mortality infant-juvenile in areas with lower quality of vital records.

Know the level and pattern of mortality is important to understand population dynamics as well as to plan public policies for the health and welfare of the population. One of the ways to get information about mortality is the Mortality Information System (SIM). Despite showing significant advances in recent years, the quality of the SIM, still prevents the direct use of data to generate indicators of mortality, which creates the need to use methods of correction for underreporting. The methods, however, are mostly not suitable for correcting the data on deaths of children and young people, and neither of sparsely populated areas. Given this need, this paper proposes to estimate the level and pattern of mortality in Brazilian municipalities in 2010, through two approaches to correct for underreporting. The first, which is applied to young and adult mortality, combines the adjusted method of extinct generations, proposed by Hill, You, and Choi (2009) with the empirical Bayes estimator proposed by James Stein (Marshall, 1991). The second methodological approach, the multiple regression analysis, in order to estimate the odds of child mortality (under 14 years) by municipalities, with bases in adult already estimated probabilities is used. In search of estimates of the level and pattern of mortality in Brazilian municipalities, these methodologies were applied to all municipalities for the year 2010, by age group and sex. The spatial pattern found for the quality of reported deaths, shows that the South and Southeast regions have mortality data of better quality in the country, while the North and Northeast have the lowest coverage of the death records. Regardless of gender, the odds of higher juvenile death occur in the municipalities of North and Northeast regions, while the probability of young adult death (15-60 years) the municipalities are the most likely of South and Southeast . The methodologies used in this work suggest a division of Brazilian male mortality in six regions with different patterns of mortality for women has suggested four patterns.
