Abstract: objective: to analyze differences in sociodemographic characteristics associated with health in individuals with and without a residential telephone line. methods: data from the isa-capital 2003 (2003 health survey), a study performed in the city of s?o paulo, southeastern brazil, were analyzed. residents who had a residential telephone line were compared to those who reported not having a telephone line, according to sociodemographic, lifestyle, health status and health service use variables. bias associated with non-coverage of the population without a telephone line was estimated, decreasing after the use of post-stratification adjustments. results: of all the 1,878 interviewees aged more than 18 years, 80.1% had a residential telephone line. by comparing groups, the main sociodemographic differences among individuals who did not have a residential telephone line were the following: younger age, greater proportion of black and mixed individuals, smaller proportion of married interviewees, and greater proportion of unemployed individuals with a lower level of education. residents without a residential telephone line had fewer health tests performed and smoked and drank more. in addition, this group took less medication, considered themselves to be in worse health conditions and used the sus (national health system) more frequently. when excluding the population without a telephone line from the analysis, estimates of dental consultations, alcoholism, drug use and sus use to have a papanicolaou test performed were those showing the highest bias. after post-stratification adjustment, there was a decrease in the bias of estimates for the variables associated with ownership of a residential telephone line. conclusions: the exclusion of residents without a telephone line was one of the main limitations to the studies performed in this way. however, the use of statistical techniques of post-stratification adjustment enables a reduction in non-coverage bias.

Abstract: objectives: to describe the changes in the use of maternal and child health care services by residents of three municipalities-embu, itapecerica da serra, and tabo?o da serra-in the s?o paulo metropolitan area, 12 years after the implementation of the unified health system (sus) in brazil, and to analyze the potential of population-based health care surveys as sources of data to evaluate these changes. methods: two population-based, cross-sectional surveys were carried out in 1990 and 2002 in municipalities located within the s?o paulo metropolitan area. for children under 1 year of age, the two periods were compared in terms of outpatient services utilization and hospital admission; for the mothers, the periods were compared in terms of prenatal care and deliveries. in both surveys, stratified and multiple-stage conglomerate sampling was employed, with standardization of interview questions. results: the most important changes observed were regarding the location of services used for prenatal care, deliveries, and hospitalization of children less than 1 year of age. there was a significant increase in the use of services in the surrounding region or hometown, and decrease in the utilization of services in the city of s?o paulo (in 1990, 80% of deliveries and almost all admissions for children less than 1 year versus 32% and 46%, respectively, in 2002). the use of primary care units and 24-hour walk-in clinics also increased. all these changes reflect care provided by public resources. in the private sector, there was a decrease in direct payments and payments through company-paid health insurance and an increase in payments through self-paid health insurance. conclusions: the major changes observed in the second survey occurred simultaneous to the changes that resulted from the implementation of the sus. population-based health surveys are adequate for analyzing and comparing the utilization of health care services at different times.

Abstract: geographic information systems serve as important public health tools for analyzing population disease distribution and thus for identifying individuals with chronic non-communicable diseases. the current study performed a spatial analysis of the distribution of the population 60 years and older in the city of botucatu, s?o paulo state, brazil, studying the socio-demographic profile and the presence of diabetes mellitus and arterial hypertension. data were analyzed from 468 elderly individuals from a population survey conducted in 2001-2002. elders with the highest socioeconomic status live in the census tracts with the highest social strata, as proven statistically by spatial analysis techniques for income and schooling. no spatial distribution pattern was found for elderly individuals with hypertension and diabetes, who were located heterogeneously on the map. the study suggests the use of geoprocessing techniques for digital mapping of areas covered by primary health care units, aimed at better monitoring of the distribution of elderly individuals with chronic diseases and their care by health professionals.

Abstract: as life expectancy continues to rise, one of the greatest challenges of public health is to improve the quality of later years of life. the aim of this present study was to analyze the quality of life profile of the elderly across different demographic and socioeconomic factors. a cross-sectional study was carried out in two stages, involving 1,958 individuals aged 60 years or more. health related quality of life (hrqol) was assessed using the sf-36 questionnaire. the lowest scores were found among measures for vitality, mental health and general health and the highest among factors including social functioning and role limitations due to emotional and physical factors. hrqol was found to be worse among women, in individuals at advanced ages, those who practiced evangelical religions and those with lower levels of income and schooling. the greatest differences in sf-36 scores between the categories were observed in functional capacity and physical factors. the results suggest that healthcare programs for the elderly should take into account the multi-dimensionality of health and social inequalities so that interventions can target the most affected elements of hrqol as well as the most vulnerable subgroups of the population.
