OBJECTIVE:

RESULTS:

3,459 deaths were recorded in the period (881 owing to LTA and 2,578 owing to homicides); the highest homicide mortality rate was 104.6 per 100,000 inhabitants in 2006, whilst for LTA it was 35.9 per 100,000 inhabitants in 2010; LTA and homicide mortality rates showed stability; higher mortality rates were found in the 20-39 age group.
