Abstract

GUEDES, José da Silva  and  GUEDES, Marilda Lauretti da Silva. Quantification of the Nelson de Moraes's indicator (curve of proportional mortality). Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1973, vol.7, n.2, pp. 103-113. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101973000200004.

Working with the Nelson de Moraes's indicator (curve of proportional mortality) it is introduced a criterion to quantify the curves, trying in this way a numeric value that, synthetizing the contribution of the different age groups to the mortality, indicates the level of health.

Keywords : Health levels [indicators]; Vital statistics; Mortality; Epidemiology.
