LAURENTI, Ruy et al. Mortality in women of reproductive age in S. Paulo city (Brazil), 1986: I - Description of the project and general results. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1990, vol.24, n.2, pp.128-133. ISSN 1518-8787.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101990000200008.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of the death certificates of a sample of a quarter of all deaths in women of reproductive age (10-49 years) resident in the Municipality of S. Paulo, SP, Brazil, in 1986. For each death, further data were gathered by means of household interviews and from medical records and autopsy information where available. Nine hundred and fifty-three deaths were analysed, for whom there were good quality death certificates except with regard to maternal deaths an terminal respiratory diseases, the former being greatly under-reported. The official maternal mortality rate was 44.5 per 100,000 live births but the true rate was 99.6 per 100,000 live births. The three main causes of death were cardiovascular diseases, neoplasms and external causes. A great proportion of smokers was found among the deceased women (40.4%). Eleven percent of the deceased consumed large amounts of alcoholic beverages regularly.
