Abstract

Objective: To describe the completeness of the profession/ occupation on flu-like syndrome, severe acute respiratory syndrome and mortality databases in Brazil between 2020 and 2021

Methods:  the absolute and relative frequencies of the completeness of the variable occupation were calculated for each state for the between 2020 and 2021.

Results: For the study period, there was 94.83% incompleteness for notifications of Flu-like syndrome, 97.73% for notified cases of SARS and 17.06% for deaths from all causes.

Conclusions: We recommend an articulation between the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Labor and Welfare and workers' representations, such as councils and unions, to solve the problem of lack of data on occupation/profession in public databases.
