Tools for dealing with Brazil's Public health data

Project description

This package collects a set of utilities for handling with public databases published by Brazil’s DATASUS The documentation of how to use PySUS can be found [here](


  • Decode encoded patient age to any time unit (years, months, etc)
  • Convert .dbc files to DBF databases or read them into pandas dataframes. DBC files are basically DBFs compressed by a proprietary algorithm.
  • Loads SINAN files into Pandas Dataframes
  • Geocodes SINAN notified cases in batch. You can use your Google API KEY to avoid Google’s free limits.
