Resumo This paper aims to describe the principal causes of violent deaths among young people in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. Data from routine mortality statistics were used in the analysis. Young males were found to have a dramatically increased risk of death from violent causes especially those resident in lower income areas of the city. Possible explanations for these findings include economic instability generating social and cultural inequalities. (C) 1998 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
