MALTA, Deborah Carvalho et al. Trends in corrected lung cancer mortality rates in Brazil and regions. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 2016, vol.50, 33.  Epub 27-Jun-2016. ISSN 1518-8787.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1518-8787.2016050006209.

OBJECTIVE

To describe the trend in cancer mortality rates in Brazil and regions before and after correction for underreporting of deaths and redistribution of ill-defined and nonspecific causes.

METHODS

The study used data of deaths from lung cancer among the population aged from 30 to 69 years, notified to the Mortality Information System between 1996 and 2011, corrected for underreporting of deaths, non-registered sex and age , and causes with ill-defined or garbage codes according to sex, age, and region. Standardized rates were calculated by age for raw and corrected data. An analysis of time trend in lung cancer mortality was carried out using the regression model with autoregressive errors.

RESULTS

Lung cancer in Brazil presented higher rates among men compared to women, and the South region showed the highest death risk in 1996 and 2011. Mortality showed a trend of reduction for males and increase for women.

CONCLUSIONS

Lung cancer in Brazil presented different distribution patterns according to sex, with higher rates among men and a reduction in the mortality trend for men and increase for women.
