MOLINA SERPA, Ivette; LOPEZ PARDO, Cándido  e  ALONSO HERNANDEZ, Ricardo. An ecologic study on tuberculosis in a Cuban municipality. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.5, pp.1305-1312. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2003000500009.

An ecological study analyzes tuberculosis incidence in the municipality of Marianao, Havana City Province, Cuba. The study characterizes tuberculosis incidence, identifies spatial distribution patterns, and relates tuberculosis incidence rates to socioeconomic factors. The spatial units are the 29 neighborhoods in the municipality of Marianao. A pattern of neighborhoods with high rates located in the central region of the municipality is identified. Incidence rates are directly (and significantly) related to the percentage of families presenting dysfunctional problems and the percentage of the population with certain levels of overcrowding and inversely related to population density, while not significantly associated with level of schooling or prevailing housing conditions.

Palavras-chave : Tuberculosis; Socioeconomic Factors; Incidence.
