LEITE, Iúri da Costa et al. Comparison of the information on prevalences of chronic diseases obtained by the health suplement of PNAD/98 and the estimated ones by the study Burden of Disease in Brazil. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2002, vol.7, n.4, pp. 733-741. ISSN 1413-8123. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232002000400010.
In this study, prevalence estimates of five chronic disease cirrhosis, depression, diabetes, chronic rhenal insufficiency and tuberculosis based on the 1998 PNAD Health Supplement were compared to those obtained by the Brazilian Global Burden of Disease Project. These estimates were based on systematic literature review as well as on available data set of morbidities. The results show that PNAD presented higher number of cases for depression and Chronic rhenal insufficiency while the prevalence rates estimated by Brazilian Global Burden of Disease Project were higher for cirrhosis, diabetes and tuberculosis.
