  1. Viral hepatitis were classified according to the following ICD-10 codes: Hepatitis A [B15.0; B15.9] Hepatitis B [B16.2; B16.9; B18.1]; Hepatitis C [B17.1; B18.2] and Hepatitis Delta [B16.0; B16.1; B18.0; B17.0] other viral hepatitis [B17.2; B17.8; B18.8; B18.9; B19.0; B19.9]. This analysis considered only people who have only one viral hepatitis ICD-10 code in their DC (mono-infected individuals). Presence of co-infection (n = 552): HAV/HBV (n = 13); HAV/HCV (n = 7); HBV/HCV (n = 518); HCV/HDV (n = 8); HAV/HBV/HCV (n = 3); HBV/HCV/others viral hepatitis (n = 3). Total of deaths = 34,988. Missing: gender (n = 3), age (n = 10). Mean population per year (in millions inhabitants): North =16,145; Northeast = 54,173; Southeast = 81,931; South = 27,956; Central-West = 14.360 and Brazil = 194,567
