Relationship between Deforested Area and Mortality

On our dynamic chart, where each circle corresponds to a municipality, it is possible to change the variables and choose information about various sources and put them on a log scale. In addition, the user can select the marker color and size based on these databases. Finally, there is the option to select the year in which you want to do the analysis. Have you tried pressing the play button to see the chart changing over time?


Mortality data collected and processed by DATASUS. It is an agency of the Secretariat for Strategic and Participatory Management of the Ministry of Health, responsible for collecting, processing, and disseminating information on health.

Deforestation data collected from the National Institute of Space Research (INPE). The PRODES project uses satellites to monitor deforestation in the Brazilian Amazônia Legal. The raw data reports the deforested area with total clearcutting and incremental year by year at the municipal level.
