ABSTRACT The development of information technology and communications has boosted the use of geographic information in dissimilar branches such as agriculture, meteorology, tourism and public health, involving the use of maps as an important factor in the decision making. The use of Geographic Information Systems in the field of health has increased significantly, but its use in the field is still limited and not fully exploit the spatial component of data. The aim of this work is to develop a proposal for the stratification of territories based on health indicators. A system to integrate data of various nature for analysis and construction of strata was obtained as a result; the solution is based on data clustering techniques and contributes to the identification of health risks in Cuban territory and decision-making in health institutions. Stratification process was conducted with selected health indicators of the Statistical Yearbook 2001 and the results were evaluated.

Palavras-chave : stratification; health risks; geographic information systems; clustering techniques.
