Temporal trend of incidence and mortality rates from COVID-19 and its relationship with socioeconomic indicators in the state of Piauí, Brazil: ecological study, 2020-2021
Keywords:Vulnerability Analysis, Covid-19, Time Series Studies, Health Inequality Indicators, Epidemiological Monitoring
Objective: Analyze the temporal trend of the incidence/mortality by COVID-19 and its relationship with socioeconomic indicators. Methods: Ecological time series study on COVID-19 cases/deaths in municipalities in Piauí, Brazil, between March/2020 and May/2021. Prais-Winsten linear regression model and the Spearman correlation test were used. Results: There were 271.228 cases and 5.888 deaths in the period. There was an increasing trend in the incidence and stability in mortality from COVID-19. The spatiotemporal analyzes showed higher incidence/mortality in the second and fifth quarters of the period. There was no statistically significant correlation between COVID-19 and IVS. Significant correlations between MHDI and incidence (p<0.001) and mortality (p<0.001) by COVID-19 were observed. Conclusion: There was an increasing trend in the
incidence of COVID-19 and stability in mortality from disease. There was a moderate and weak correlation of these indicators with MHDI, demanding decisions aimed at improving the population's quality of life in the management spheres.
