Description
Population-based quantitative study. This study's objectives were to examine the influence of regions, age, and time on cervical cancer mortality. We analyzed cervical cancer mortality rates in the State of Santa Catarina, Brazil between 1996 and 2011. Data were obtained from the Mortality Information System from the Brazilian Ministry of Health in 2013. Data were analyzed based on descriptive epidemiology. Cervical cancer mortality rates ranged from 3.6 to 5.0/100,000 women. Rates were higher among older women, with the highest rates after the age of 70. Women's awareness regarding the importance of the Pap smear test in their health checkups may differ across ages and regions of residence. The frequency of Pap smears should change due to the trend of mortality rates observed over time.
