Paula Becker,


This material brings data on the results of univariate gamma regression model for direct costs, which was the first stage of inferential analysis using the linear regression model so that we could analyse which variables could be interacting with total direct cost per capita. The first table shows these data and precedes the multivariate analysis described in the article. The second table shows a more detailed descreptive analysis of per capita direct costs according to the current drug use pattern (evaluated by ASSIST alcohol, cannabis and cocaine/crack), including mean, standard deviation, minimum, maximum, first quartile, median, third quartile and the p value according to Kruskal-Wallis test. These data make reference to the article by Dr. Paula Becker e Dr. Denise Razzouk called " Relationships between age of onset of drug use, use pattern, and direct health costs in a sample of adults’ drug dependents in treatment at a Brazilian community mental health service ".
