In the group of owners with smaller schooling, the increase of the formal instruction, for nine or more years, can reduce the number of dogs without confinement, vaccination (except against the rabies) or deworming in 23,3% (IC95%=10,935,2), 30,5% (IC95%=18,7-41,1) and 22,3% (IC95%=10,7-33,2), respectively; in the assembly of all of the owners of dogs this reduction can be, in the same order, of 10.7% (IC95%=0,8-19,3), 14.3% (IC95%=3,9-24,3) and 10.7% (IC95%=1,0-19,5).
