SANTOS, Simone Agadir et al. Suicide and attempts suicide by exogenous intoxication in Rio de Janeiro: analysis of data from official health information systems, 2006-2008. Rev. bras. epidemiol. [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.2, pp.376-387. ISSN 1415-790X.

Objective: To describe the profile of suicide and attempts suicide by exogenous intoxication and completeness of data from the Center for Poisoning Control in Niterói City (CCIn), Information System for Notifiable Diseases (Sinan), and Mortality Information System (SIM) for Rio de Janeiro state (RJ). Methods: It was verified the frequency of suicide attempts and mortality in Rio de Janeiro state, period 2006-2008. The variables analyzed were sex, area of occurrence, circumstance, evolution, age, toxic agents and cause (ICD-10: X60-X69). The percentage of unknown information/blank was classified as excellent (≤ 10%), good (10 to 29.9%) and poor (≥ 30%). SPSS was used for statistical analysis. Results: Nine hundred and forty records of attempts (CCIn) and 470 (Sinan) were analysed. The female and the age group of 20-39 years predominated, as well as use of toxic agents like medicines and pesticides. About suicide, were identified 33 records (CCIn), 23 (Sinan) and 180 (SIM). In CCIn were more frequent female and age group of 15-29 years, through Sinan and SIM from 40-59 years. For both events, psychotropic drugs accounted for more than 70% of drugs. The Sinan system has shown the worst performance for toxic agents. Conclusions: Despite advances in improving the quality of information generated by the systems, problems regarding the coverage and data completeness remain committing the analysis of the magnitude of injuries. The study points out to the needs of systems compatibility and the improvement of the quality of information that are generated.
