  1. Abbreviations: CI = Confidence Interval; PSF = Family Health Program; RR = Rate Ratio.
  2. a = defined as coverage equal to 0% of the population.
  3. b = defined as coverage of less than 30% of the municipal population.
  4. c = defined as coverage of 30% to 69.9% of the municipal population.
  5. d = defined as coverage of more than or equal to 70% of the municipal population.
  6. *Models adjusted for total fertility rate, per capita income, percentage of functional illiterates among individuals older than 15 years and population of the municipalities.
