Space-time distribution of outpatient production for urinary incontinence in men, Brazil, 2010-2019
Keywords:Urinary Incontinence, Men's Health, Time Series Studies, Geographic Mapping
Objective: To estimate the temporal trend and spatial distribution of outpatient production for urinary incontinence in men in Brazil. Methods: Time-series ecological study for Brazil and regions, from 2010-2019. These data were obtained in the Unified
Health System Outpatient Information System. Prais-Winsten regression was used to analyze the temporal trend in the country and by region. To forecast the trend until 2024 the integrated autoregressive model of moving averages was used. Results: There were 3,457 outpatient care for urinary incontinence in men registered in 2010 to 16,765 in 2019, an increasing temporal trend was observed in Brazil, with an annual percent change of 50.37% and a confidence interval of 95% (37.54%;63.62%); and a growth forecast between the years 2020-2024, by the final model ARIMA (1, 1, 0). The spatial distribution of urinary incontinence presented variation in rates for the geographic regions of Brazil. Conclusion: There was an increasing temporal trend in outpatient production for urinary incontinence in men in Brazil between 2010-2019 and a growth forecast until 2024. The highest rates occurred in the Southeast region and the highest increase in the South region.
