IHME researchers leveraged data from the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study to produce life expectancy, all-cause mortality, and cause-specific mortality forecasts for 195 countries and territories from 2016-2040. In addition to reference scenarios, alternative “better” and “worse” scenarios were produced. Estimates for life expectancy at birth, and deaths and years of life lost (YLLs) for 250 causes by cause, age, and sex are available from GBD Foresight. Estimates for deaths and YLLs attributable to each GBD risk factor and summary exposure values (SEV) by risk are also available. Select tables published in The Lancet in October 2018 in "Forecasting life expectancy, years of life lost, and all-cause and cause-specific mortality for 250 causes of death: reference and alternative scenarios for 2016–40 for 195 countries and territories" are available for download in this record.

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (GBD 2017), 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.

This dataset includes full and abridged life tables with estimates for life expectancy and probability of death by location, single calendar year, age, and sex for 1950-2017. Full life tables contain estimates by single year of age. Abridged life tables contain estimates by 5-year age group. Locations covered include both GBD locations and special regions such as World Bank Income Levels. Data used to produce these tables came from vital registration (VR) systems, sample registration systems, household surveys, censuses, disease surveillance, and demographic surveillance systems (DSS).

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (GBD 2017), 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.

Developed by GBD researchers and used to help produce these estimates, the Socio-demographic Index (SDI) is a composite indicator of development status strongly correlated with health outcomes. It is the geometric mean of 0 to 1 indices of total fertility rate under the age of 25 (TFU25), mean education for those ages 15 and older (EDU15+), and lag distributed income (LDI) per capita. As a composite, a location with an SDI of 0 would have a theoretical minimum level of development relevant to health, while a location with an SDI of 1 would have a theoretical maximum level.

This dataset provides tables with SDI values for all estimated GBD 2017 locations for 1950–2017 and groupings by location based on their 2017 values.

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 234 unique health states used to estimate nonfatal health outcomes for the GBD 2017 study. The data were published in The Lancet in November 2018 in "Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017."

IHME and collaborating researchers conducted a study to map the global distribution of genotypes of bacterial strains that cause tuberculosis disease and examine whether any epidemiologically relevant clinical characteristics were associated with those genotypes. They performed a systematic review to create a comprehensive dataset of human TB molecular epidemiology studies that used representative sampling techniques. Data were extracted and synthesized from 206 studies that reported prevalence of bacterial genotypes (representing over 200,000 bacterial isolates collected over 27 years in 85 countries) and from 34 studies that reported clinical characteristics associated with those genotypes. This dataset contains the following: a screening sheet detailing all studies reviewed; raw genotype distribution data extracted in the systematic review; raw genetic clustering data extracted; and sheets containing MTBC genotype conversions for all genotyping methods included in this study.

Research by IHME and the Department of Health Surveillance, Brazil Ministry of Health produced estimates for age-standardized mortality rates by Brazil municipality for HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. The estimates were generated using de-identified death records from the Brazil Mortality Information System (SIM); case notification data from the Brazil national notification system (SINAN); standardization of vital registration of data based on GBD 2016 methodology; and the application of small area estimation models.

This dataset provides estimates for age-standardized mortality rates by cause and sex at the state level and the municipality level for each state for 2001-2015. Study results were published in BMC Medicine in September 2018 in "Progress toward eliminating TB and HIV deaths in Brazil, 2001–2015: a spatial assessment."

Estimates were produced for the prevalence and incidence of diarrhea and diarrhea-related mortality among children younger than 5 years of age at the 5x5 km-level in 52 countries in Africa between 2000-2015. These estimates were produced using data on diarrhea and geographical locations from censuses, several household survey series, including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and other country‐specific surveys.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of diarrhea prevalence, incidence of severe diarrheal episodes, diarrhea-related mortality, annualized rates of change for severe incidence and diarrheal mortality, and the probability that a unit will reach GAPPD goals for the reduction of incidence and mortality for given years

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.

As part of this study, estimates for alcohol use and the disease burden attributable to this risk factor were produced by sex, age group, and year for 195 countries and territories for 1990-2016. Estimates for alcohol-attributable deaths and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) are available from the GBD Results Tool. Files available in this record include estimates of the prevalence of current drinking, abstention, and the population average of standard drinks daily. Study results were published in The Lancet in August 2018 in "Alcohol use and burden: a systematic analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 for 195 countries and territories, 1990–2016."

Human capital, widely recognized as the level of education and health in a population, is considered an important determinant of economic growth. IHME generated a measure of expected human capital, defined for each birth cohort as the expected years lived from 20 to 64 years of age adjusted for educational attainment, learning or education quality, and functional health status using period-age-and-sex-specific rates. Learning estimates are based on student performance on math, science, and reading assessments. Functional health status is comprised of the prevalence of seven conditions with proven links to productivity and learning.

This dataset includes estimates for the following five measures by age and sex for 195 countries from 1990-2016: expected human capital; average years of educational attainment, from 0-18 years; learning, the average standardized test score transformed to a 0 to 1 scale; health, transformed to a 0 to 1 scale; and survival, or expected years lived between ages 20-64.

Contemporary range maps for 278 medically important snake species and estimates of the populations most vulnerable to snakebite envenoming were produced. Existing expert opinion range (EOR) maps, occurrence data, and a multivariate environmental similarity analysis were used to generate the contemporary range maps. These data were triangulated with geographical accessibility surfaces, the HAQ Index (a measure of healthcare access and quality), and information on antivenom availability to identify vulnerable populations.

This dataset includes: shapefiles for the range maps and vulnerable population counts; GeoTIFF files at the 5x5 km-level for venomous snake species ranges, vulnerable population hotspots, and travel time to major cities in snake species ranges; and CSV files for vulnerable populations at the admin 2-level.

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 National Health Accounts. The resulting estimates were used to help produce prospective health spending estimates for 2016-2040. Results of the analysis were published in The Lancet in April 2018 in "Spending on health and HIV/AIDS: domestic health spending and development assistance in 188 countries, 1995-2015."

This version of the Development Assistance for Health (DAH) Database includes estimates for 1990-2017, 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 source of funds, channel of funding, country and geographic region, health focus areas, and program areas. New in 2017 are a program area disaggregation within the tuberculosis health focus area, and identification of DAH targeting pandemic preparedness, within the HSS/SWAps health focus area. Also new this year are the tracking of the United Arab Emirates as a source of funding and tracking Unitaid channel funding.

To understand the framework used to track DAH, users of the database should review IHME's Financing Global Health 2017 report and methods annex.

HealthRise is a collaborative multicountry initiative to implement and evaluate innovative community-based programs intended to improve heart disease and diabetes care in underserved communities. Conducted as part of HealthRise South Africa, this health facility survey was carried out at 86 facilities in Umgungundlovu district in KwaZulu-Natal province and Pixley ka Seme district in Northern Cape province. The survey was based on based on the WHO package of essential NCD interventions and South Africa’s Essential Medicine List and Standard Treatment Guidelines for Primary Health Care 2014. It was adapted from a questionnaire created for the Access, Bottlenecks, Costs, and Equity (ABCE) study. Data were collected about facility capacity, equipment availability, pharmaceutical and supply stocks, staffing, and services provided. The data were collected through computer-assisted personal interviews (CAPI).

This survey was conducted as part of the Gavi Full Country Evaluation (FCE) project in Zambia. Gavi FCEs are prospective studies covering the period 2013-2016 that aim to assess the barriers to and drivers of immunization program performance. The Zambia FCE Health Facility Survey was conducted in 22 districts purposely selected to overlap with those where a baseline facility survey for the Access, Bottlenecks, Costs, and Equity (ABCE) Project in Zambia was performed. The districts provide a geographically and demographically representative sample of Zambia’s health system. For this survey, data on financing, staffing, facility procedures and guidelines, vaccine stocks, and supply delivery (including cold chain temperature measurements) were collected from a representative sample of 171 health facilities. Data were collected through interviews of health providers, direct observation of facility areas, and assisted observation of immunization sessions.

The Child Growth Failure Visualization is an interactive data tool that shows levels and trends in growth failure at birth and in children under 5, both past and projected from 1990 to 2030. The tool also demonstrates how cases of child growth failure (stunting, wasting, and underweight) have changed due to contributing factors including population growth, Socio-demographic Index, and unsafe sanitation from 1990 to 2016 and 2000 to 2016.

This dataset contains the input data used to produce the estimates visualized by the tool. Each file includes information about how the input sources were used and relevant metadata about the sources as suggested in the Guidelines for Accurate and Transparent Health Estimates Reporting (GATHER).

Estimates were produced for under-5 stunting, wasting, and underweight prevalence at the 5x5 km-level in 51 countries in Africa between 2000-2015. These estimates were produced using individual-level height, weight, and age data for children under 5 and geographical locations from household survey series including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Mulitple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), Living Standards Measurement Study (LSMS), and Core Welfare Indicators Questionnaire Survey (CWIQ). This dataset includes both GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of under-5 stunting, wasting, and underweight prevalence, along with relative annualized rates of change for each, 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.

Gavi FCEs are prospective studies covering the period 2013-2016 that aim to assess the barriers to and drivers of immunization program performance. The Uganda FCE Household Survey was conducted in 19 districts purposely selected to overlap with districts where the FCE Health Facility Survey was conducted in 2014-2015. The initial sample size for the household survey was 3,990 households. Data were collected from heads of households and mothers and/or primary caregivers of children ages 0-59 months. Topics covered include household characteristics, immunization knowledge, birth histories of mothers and child caretakers, pregnancy and postnatal care, child feeding practices, current health and vaccine status of the child, and vaccination experience at health facilities. In a sub-sample of children, a small amount of blood was collected in order to measure vaccine presence.

This survey was conducted as part of the Gavi Full Country Evaluation (FCE) project in Uganda. Gavi FCEs are prospective studies covering the period 2013-2016 that aim to assess the barriers to and drivers of immunization program performance. The Uganda FCE was conducted in 19 districts purposely selected to overlap with those where a baseline facility survey for the Access, Bottlenecks, Costs, and Equity (ABCE) Project in Uganda was performed. The districts provide a geographically and demographically representative sample of Uganda’s health system. For the FCE Health Facility Survey, data on financing, staffing, facility procedures and guidelines, vaccine stocks, and supply delivery (including cold chain temperature measurements) were collected from a representative sample of 177 health facilities. Data were collected through interviews of health providers, direct observation of facility areas, and assisted observation of immunization sessions.

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."
