However, the results that may be obtained from the spatial analysis of indicators are subjected to different choices made throughout these processes, that is, the selection of indicators of the information sources, of the level of analysis, of spatial units of reference, of spatial analysis methods and even the conception of geographical space. This paper discusses the effect of selection of data and scale aggregating units on the spatial analysis for the evaluation of health situations, using the distribution of mortality rates from esophageal cancer in the south of Brazil as an example
