Estimates were produced for three stages underlying the potential of widespread epidemics for four viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) in Africa: Ebola virus disease, Marburg virus disease, Lassa fever, and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever. Stage 1, index case potential, assesses populations at risk of infection due to spillover from zoonotic hosts or vectors, identifying where index cases could present. Stage 2, outbreak potential, measures potential for secondary spread amongst humans within specific communities. Stage 3, epidemic potential, evaluates possible spread of local outbreaks nationally, regionally, and internationally. Estimates were generated at the second national administrative division (admin 2) level and as indices on a 0-10 scale, with 10 representing the worst outcome. This dataset includes these estimates in shapefiles and CSV files for admin 2 locations across Africa for each pathogen in each stage.

IHME research produced estimates for age-standardized mortality rates by county from chronic respiratory diseases. The estimates were generated using de-identified death records from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS); population counts from the U.S. Census Bureau, NCHS, and the Human Mortality Database; the cause list from the Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD); and the application of small area estimation models. This dataset provides estimates for age-standardized mortality rates by disease type and sex at the county level for each state, the District of Columbia, and the United States as a whole for 1980-2014, as well as the changes in rates for each location during this period. Also included are data on the 10 counties with the highest and lowest mortality rates for each disease type in 2014. Study results were published in JAMA in September 2017 in "Trends and patterns of differences in chronic respiratory disease mortality among US counties, 1980–2014."

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (GBD 2016), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors for 195 countries and territories and at the subnational level for a subset of countries.

In GBD, an essential stage in the process for producing estimates for adult mortality rates (or 45q15, the probability of death between exact ages 15 and 60) involves assessing the completeness of adult death reporting from vital registration and censuses. In this evaluation, raw data points from vital registration and sample registration are adjusted using formal demographic techniques called death distribution methods (DDM) and then smoothed to generate full time-series estimates of adult death reporting completeness. This dataset contains a list of data input sources used in the generation of DDM estimates for adult mortality.

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (GBD 2016), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors from 1990 to 2016.

The United Nations established, in September 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which specify 17 universal goals, 169 targets, and 232 indicators leading up to 2030. Drawing from GBD 2016, this dataset provides estimates for 37 health-related SDG indicators for 188 countries from 1990 to 2016, as well as projections, based on past trends, from 2017 to 2030. These 37 SDG indicators were used to construct the health-related SDG index, a summary measure of overall performance across the health-related SDGs.

The results were published in The Lancet in September 2017 in "Measuring progress and projecting attainment based on past trends of the health-related Sustainable Development Goals in 188 countries: an analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016."

Disability weights, which represent the magnitude of health loss associated with specific health outcomes, are used to calculate years lived with disability (YLD) for these outcomes in a given population. The weights are measured on a scale from 0 to 1, where 0 equals a state of full health and 1 equals death. This dataset provides disability weights for the 235 unique health states used to estimate nonfatal health outcomes for the GBD 2016 study. The data were published in The Lancet in September 2017 in "Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 328 diseases and injuries for 195 countries, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016."

This reference life table is used in GBD to calculate years of life lost (YLLs). It was constructed based on the lowest estimated age-specific mortality rates from all locations with populations over 5 million in the 2015 iteration of GBD. YLLs are computed by multiplying the number of estimated deaths by the reference life table’s life expectancy at age of death. The table includes estimates for the probability of death within an age range, the proportion of the hypothetical cohort still alive at age x, and life expectancy at age x for ages 0 to 110+ at five-year intervals.

Estimates were produced for under‐5 mortality (the probability of death before reaching age 5) and neonatal mortality (probability of death within first month of life) for each pixel cell (approximately 5x5 kilometer (km)) in 46 countries in Africa for 1998-2002, 2003-2007, 2008-2012, and 2013-2017. These estimates were produced using data on child mortality and geographical locations from censuses and several household survey series, including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Unicef Mulitple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and other country‐specific surveys. This dataset includes both GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of probability of death and CSV files of aggregated estimates for each country at the first and second administrative divisions.

Code files used to generate the estimates are available online.

This survey was conducted as part of the Gavi Full Country Evaluation (FCE) project in Bangladesh. Gavi FCEs are prospective studies covering the period 2013-2016 that aim to assess the barriers to and drivers of immunization program performance. The Bangladesh FCE focused on selected locations stratified by urban/rural and low/high immunization coverage performance areas. It was conducted in one rural district and one city corporation each in the divisions of Sylhet and Rajshahi. This survey collected information from patient exit interviews conducted with caregivers of children 9 months to 15 years of age immediately following their measles-rubella vaccination. Topics covered include sociodemographic characteristics of the caretaker; patient experiences at the facility; patient opinions of the experience; and knowledge, attitudes and practice regarding measles and rubella immunizations, as well as knowledge of measles and rubella symptoms, prevention, and treatment.

National health spending by source, including development assistance for health, was estimated based on a diverse set of data, including program reports, budget data, national estimates, and 964 National Health Accounts. The resulting estimates were used to help produce forecasted health spending estimates for 2015-2040. Results of the study were published in The Lancet in April 2017 in "Evolution and patterns of global health financing 1995–2014: development assistance for health, and government, prepaid private, and out-of-pocket health spending in 184 countries."

This update of the Development Assistance for Health (DAH) Database includes estimates for 1990-2016, which are based on project databases, financial statements, annual reports, IRS 990s, and correspondence with agencies. The DAH Database enables comprehensive analysis of trends in international disbursements of grants and loans for health projects in low and middle income countries from key agencies. The data are disaggregated by funding agency, country and geographic region, and health focus area. New in 2016 is a program area disaggregation within malaria health focus areas.

To understand the framework used to track DAH, users of the DAH Database 1990-2016 should review IHME's Financing Global Health 2016 technical report and methods annex.

Developed by GBD researchers and used to help produce these estimates, the Socio-demographic Index (SDI) is a summary measure of a geography's socio-demographic development. It is based on average income per person, educational attainment, and total fertility rate (TFR). SDI contains an interpretable scale: zero represents the lowest income per capita, lowest educational attainment, and highest TFR observed across all GBD geographies from 1980 to 2015, and one represents the highest income per capita, highest educational attainment, and lowest TFR. This dataset provides tables with SDI values for all estimated GBD 2015 geographies for 1980–2015 and groupings by geography based on 2015 values.

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 (GBD 2015), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors at the global, regional, national, territorial, and, for a subset of countries, subnational level.

Covariates, which are independent variables with a positive or negative relationship to GBD diseases and conditions, are used to inform the estimation process in all models of the GBD study. Types of covariates used include socioeconomic, demographic, health system access, climate, and food consumption. This dataset contains data for 296 covariates for 195 countries and territories, plus 4 United Kingdom subnational units for 1980-2015 used in the GBD 2015 study. Data files are available to download at this location. Please note that data for England is not included for some covariates.

Disability weights, which represent the magnitude of health loss associated with specific health outcomes, are used to calculate years lived with disability for these outcomes in a given population. The weights are measured on a scale from 0 to 1, where 0 equals a state of full health and 1 equals death. This dataset provides the disability weights for the 235 unique health states used to estimate nonfatal health outcomes for the GBD 2015 study. These data were published in The Lancet in October 2016 in "Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 310 diseases and injuries, 1990-2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015."
