Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare estimates of external causes based on the Global Burden of Disease in Brazil Study for the years 1998 and 2008. Methods included estimation of DALYs (disability-adjusted life years) and YLL (years of life lost), based on the methodology proposed in the Global Burden of Disease Study. Calculation of YLD (years lived with disability) required applying the same methodology in both years, with the 2008 methodology as the standard. Although external causes accounted for some 10% of total DALYs in both years, their internal distribution showed marked differences between regions of Brazil, with a decrease in the Southeast and increase in the North and Northeast. There was an increase in intentional causes, and YLLs accounted for the largest share of DALYs. The results can support new policies and/or improve existing ones to address external causes.
