  1. Mean population per year (ratio between total population from 2008 to 2014 and 7 years; expressed in millions inhabitants): North =16,145; Northeast = 54,173; Southeast = 81,931; South = 27,956; Central-West = 14.360 and Brazil = 194.567. Crude mortality rate = number of death / mean population * 7 (number of years). Age-st-MR, age-standardized mortality rate; MR, mortality rate. N = 552 patients had co-infection (more than one viral hepatitis ICD-10 codes in their death certificate: 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). In patients with missing age (n = 10), it was not possible to calculate adjusted-mortality rate
