The present study evaluated the perception of the urban population of Uberlândia/MG regarding the occurrence of notified dengue cases. A script of questions was developed that combined social, environmental, political and economic variables, which could explain, in the perception of the research participants, the current dengue scenario in the municipality. 384 randomized individuals living in the municipality were interviewed, from may to august 2019, through the survey of qualitative and quantitative data. The data obtained could compose a qualitative and quantitative model of NLR (Nominal Logistic Regression) that relates a set of predictors and a nominal response, and a set of co-occurrence maps of qualitative variables. The quantitative results showed that the female group correlates highly, significantly the set of variables determined in the research. In the outputs of maps of the qualitative models, the opposite decision of the preference preference groups (weak, moderate, good and high) was evident. Individuals who reported weak correlation of the proposed variables in determining the occurrence of notified cases of dengue showed a greater correlation between the codes "society" and "policies and local economy", attributing greater responsibility to the role of municipal public management in this scenario. The high and good correlation groups showed greater concern with environmental aspects, mainly regarding the issue of waste and urban pollutants. Therefore, it is concluded that in the quantitative model, there was a different pattern of responses, significantly among individuals declared in the research. And in relation to the quantitative data, the opposite decision of the preference response groups was evident. The role of the municipal public manager must consider the need for extension, inclusion and permanence of strategic actions in the areas most vulnerable to dengue in the municipality, given the fragility of health services and the scope of policies involving quality of life and environmental education.
