Abstract

Objective: To assess the completeness of the tuberculosis data in the health information system regarding the quality of the data and the consistency of the notification form records of a municipality in northeastern Brazil. Method: A descriptive and retrospective study based on secondary data from the Notifiable Diseases Information System database. The population will consist of all the tuberculosis cases notified in the period from 2009 to 2019. Data collection will take place during the second semester of 2020, with no link between databases. The statistical analysis will be carried out through the free R software. Completeness will be based on the classification of the Notifiable Diseases Information System. Expected results: To provide information that allows knowing the completeness of the data, regarding quality and consistency, about tuberculosis records and notification to aid in decision-making of actions and activities.
