RESULTS: the Metropolitan Region of Recife, capital of the State of Pernambuco, had the highest number of death (2,594), as well as the highest mortality rates, ranging from 52.2 per 100,000 population in 1996 to 59.4 per 100,000 population in 2005; the analysis by sex showed an upward trend for the State of Pernambuco (p=0,005) and thefollowing regions of Agreste Pernambucano (p<0.0001), Mata Pernambucana (p<0.001) and Sao Francisco Pernambucano (p<0.005).
