Abstract: Purpose: To carry out a study of association between socioeconomic and demographic factors and homicides in general population, in the state of Bahia, in 2009. Methods: This is an ecological study. The data were collected from the database of the Information System about Mortality of the Ministry of Health, from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics and the Institute of Applied Economic Research. The Global Moran index was calculated for the detection of spatial autocorrelation, and the Local Mor… Show more

“…10 This movement towards the outskirts probably occurred because of the unequal distribution of State interventions, following the global trend of violent events, such as intentional homicides tending to occur in economically disadvantaged places. [2][3][4]16,18,19,[23][24][25][26][27][28][29] Although the data used in this study were retrieved from official information systems, they are subject to information bias, given the process that takes place between the occurrence of the event and the data being input on the systems. The first limitation of this study is underreporting which is reflected in the reduction in the number of deaths reported because of burials taking place without the required notification being made.…”

“…15,20,21 In addition to their epidemiological usefulness, these studies also corroborate the information produced by smoothed maps, by allowing visual observation and interpretation of the spatial pattern of events, thus contributing to more rational decision-making by the public sector. [23][24][25]27,28 Actions can be planned in a more egalitarian manner, targeting human, material and technological resources to the most problematic areas, contributing to greater efficiency in the use of public resources. 20,21 The usefulness of the Bayesian method associated with Moran's spatial statistics in assisting the identification of areas of risk of occurrence of diseases and events has been highlighted in other studies.…”

“…Otros estudios (14,15,16) destacan que la intensificación de este fenómeno en ciertas localidades del estado se potencia, probablemente, por la expansión de la actividad turística y recuperación de la economía relacionada con la producción de cacao, que atrae migrantes y genera oportunidades, pero también aumenta los problemas sociales y conflictos. A pesar de que el riesgo de muerte por homicidio se encuentre vastamente diseminado por todo el territorio bahiano, en los municipios de la franja costera, la región metropolitana (este) y en el triángulo formado por Porto Seguro, Vitória da Conquista e Itabuna, el fenómeno cobra perfiles alarmantes.…”

“…The national journals have been showing falls in the mortality rates for murders in the large Brazilian metropolises 19,20 and increases in cities around the capitals metropolitan regionssuch as is the case for Itaboraí just like the cities in the outskirts of the states and in the border regions [21][22][23][24][25] . It would be important to monitor whether the occurrence of a decline in the rates observed in the municipality studied was consistent.…”
