Although all regions of the country experienced a drop in birth registrations in 2022, it is important to highlight that in the Northeast (-6.7%) and North (-3.8%), the decrease was more pronounced than the national average .

Amid this general panorama of decline, only two states stood out with increases in birth registrations. Santa Catarina (2.0%) and Mato Grosso (1.8%) contradicted the national trend, suggesting that there are regional and state nuances that require more detailed analysis.
