BARBOSA, Genesis de Souza; LIMA, Roberta de  and  GUIMARAES, Raphael Mendonça. Time series of renal cancer mortality in Brazil (1996-2010). Cad. saúde colet. [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.4, pp.537-540. ISSN 1414-462X.

This article aims to evaluate the trend of renal cancer mortality in Brazil between 1996 and 2010. It was studied a time series which the rate was standardized by world population and log-transformed. Then, polynomial regression was performed to verify the rates trend that shows higher susceptibility in the elderly, followed by the group of adults and children with zero to nine years old. With this logic, preventive actions, especially targeted to vulnerable populations, may bring benefits, minimizing the number of renal cancer deaths in Brazil.
