Resumo: We performed ecological study using data on hospital admissions of individuals aged 65 or more years old with principal diagnosis coded according ICD-9-CM as 480-487 or 510 for all-cause pneumonia (ACP) and 481 for pneumococcal pneumonia (PP) , respectively. Between 1998 and 2015 of all hospitalizations of older adults 7.6% were by ACP and 0.4% by PP. In 1998 the admission rates for ACP and PP were of 111.7/10000 and 6.0/10000 for male and 63.7/10000 and 3.5/10000 for female, respectively. In 2015 the admission rates were 192.3/10000 and 5.0/10000 for male and 133.6/10000 and 3.3/10000 for female. The hospitalization rates for pneumonia were high in Portugal. All-cause pneumonia hospitalization rates for individuals aged 65 or more years increased in 18 year under study, the different trend was verified for pneumococcal pneumonia hospitalizations.
