The aim of this technical work is to describe a simple procedure to calculate the distances between the 5565 municipal districts in Brazil. Two types of distance matrices were computed: i) one from the shortest path problem on the multimodal transport network in 2010; ii) another, Euclidean, by geographic coordinates. These matrices, 5565 x 5565, provide relevant information that may potentially be used to develop future academic studies and applied models (eg, degrees of accessibility for several economic activities, regional agglomerations, developing of computable general equilibrium model, among others). Therefore, the main purpose of the development of these matrices is to build a database that can be used by applied studies.
