Keywords:Mortality, Time Series Studies, Causes of Death, External Causes, Transport Accident
Objective: to analyze the characteristics and temporal trend of mortality rates in the population aged 5 to 14 years in Mato Grosso state and Brazil, from 2009 to 2020. Methods: ecological time-series study, based on data from Mortality Information System. Descriptive and trend analysis were performed, using the regression model by inflection points (JoinPoint regression) and calculating the average change in the period (average annual percentage change – AAPC). Results: in Brazil and Mato Grosso, deaths were predominantly male, preventable and due to external causes. A decreasing trend was identified in Brazil (5 a 9 years AAPC: -2,9; 95%CI -4,3;-1,6 and 10 a 14 years AAPC: - 2,5; 95%CI -3,3;-1,8) and stationary in Mato Grosso (5 a 9 years AAPC: -2,0; 95%CI -5,6;1,7 and 10 a 14 years AAPC: -0,1; 95%CI -5,9;6,1). Conclusion: the stationarity of the mortality trend at high levels demands urgent interventions to reduce it.
