Results: There were permanent partial disability in 73.3% and disability in 26.7%. An association with age (p=0.002) showed that population between 50 and 65 years old had higher loss of workning capacity. Besides, association with sex (p=0.047) identify that females had more disability prevalence (34.7%) than males (23.2%) and that comorbidity (p=0.019) with musculoskeletal disorders and depressive disorders generated greater loss of working capacity.
