Perinatal mortality comprises an important indicator of obstetric, neonatal and socioeconomic status of the population, in Brazil there are few published studies on this subject. The goal of this project is to describe the perinatal mortality in the years 2003 to 2007 and from 2008 to 2012 in the municipalities of the state of São Paulo. An exploratory ecological study will be outlined. Perinatal mortality data will be obtained from DATASUS portal for the years 2003-2007 and 2008-2012, identifying fetal deaths and early neonatal deaths in the same portal information on maternal age, education level, income and the existence of unity will be obtained family health. The data will be inserted into the table to be analyzed by terra View. Initially, the Moran index that estimates the spatial correlation is calculated. One between the comparative periods will be performed, noting that municipalities had improvement or worsening in this mortality. And will be created thematic maps by terra View program maps on incidence rates of perinatal mortality, Moran map, map of LISA.
