The Trajetorias dataset is a harmonized set of environmental, epidemiological, and poverty indicators for all municipalities of the Brazilian Legal Amazon (BLA). This dataset is the result of a scientific synthesis research initiative conducted by scientists from several natural and social sciences fields, consolidating multidisciplinary indicators into a coherent dataset for integrated and interdisciplinary studies of the Brazilian Amazon. The Trajetorias dataset is organized in dimensions describing: environmental degradation, land use and land cover, human mobility, climate anomalies, the burden of vector-borne diseases, and poverty indices for rural and urban populations for each of the BLA municipalities. Characterizing the environmental, epidemiological, and socioeconomic profile of the municipalities. These indicators were designed to unveil the specificities of the Amazon region, so that the relationships between these dimensions can be explored regarding past and current enacted policies. The Trajetorias dataset relies on four surveys - the two demographic censuses conducted in 2000 and 2010, and the two agrarian censuses conducted in 2006 and 2017, from which were defined fixed timestamps for analysis. The demographic censuses are the source of data for the multidimensional poverty indices. Environmental data come from satellite images collected by several national and international programs, such as the Amazon Deforestation Monitoring Program (PRODES), DEGRAD, and DETER, accounting for changes in landscape that took place between each demographic census and the subsequent agrarian census. Lastly, disease control data was obtained from the National Disease Notification System and summarized for the 5-year period centered in the agrarian censuses.
