To analyze trends in mortality among men in the city of Rio de Janeiro, by group of causes between 1996 and 2011.


A descriptive study of time series using data of male deaths among residents in the city of Rio de Janeiro, in the period 1996-2011, for large groups of causes. Data were analyzed with Excel 2010 and Statistical Package for Social Sciences software (SPSS) version 22.0.


The mortality trend by large groups of causes among men in the city of Rio de Janeiro is decreasing, with differences between groups of causes. However, these men remain ill over the years.


The National Men's Health Policy should be more sensitive to this reality, offering health care that is able to more fully recognize the health needs of this audience.
