The United Nations General Assembly established, in September 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which specify 17 universal goals, 169 targets, and 230 indicators leading up to 2030. This dataset provides estimates, based on the GBD 2015 study, for 33 health-related SDG indicators for 188 countries from 1990 to 2015. These 33 individual health-related 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 2016 in "Measuring the health-related Sustainable Development Goals in 188 countries: a baseline analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015."

This update of the Development Assistance for Health (DAH) Database includes estimates for 1990-2015, 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 developing countries from key agencies. The data are disaggregated by funding agency, country and geographic region, and health focus area. New in 2015 is a program area disaggregation within HIV/AIDS health focus areas.

To understand the framework used to track DAH, users of the DAH Database 1990-2015 should review IHME's Financing Global Health 2015 policy report and methods annex.

As part of a study to analyze the measurement of health service provision in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), IHME researchers developed a simulation environment which reproduces the characteristics of health service production in LMICs, and evaluated the performance of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and Stochastic Distance Function (SDF) for assessing efficiency. The attached archive contains the code used in this study, which is described in the following publication:

This 2013 update of the Development Assistance for Health (DAH) database includes estimates for 1990-2011, 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 for health from sources of funding and channels of funding and for recipient countries/geographic regions in health focus areas. The data associated with previous versions of IHME's Financing Global Health report were presented as two databases, the DAH country and regional recipient level database, and the DAH database. This year, in an effort to make the data more accessible to researchers, these databases have been combined.

To understand the framework used to track DAH, we recommend that users of the DAH database 1990-2011 review IHME's Financing Global Health 2013 policy report and methods appendix.

IHME research published in Population Health Metrics in March 2014, "Cigarette smoking prevalence in US counties: 1996-2012," provides prevalence estimates by county, year, and sex from 1996-2012. These files also include annualized rates of change by county.

These are IHME results data from a global analysis of tobacco use published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in January 2014.  The study, "Smoking Prevalence and Cigarette Consumption in 187 countries, 1980-2012," provides smoking prevalence, cigarette consumption, and annual rate of change estimates by country and sex from 1980 to 2012. 

These data were collected as part of the Population Health Metrics Research Consortium (PHMRC) project. The files contain verbal autopsies (VAs) that were collected at six sites in four countries (India, Mexico, Tanzania, and the Philippines) using a standardized VA questionnaire developed by the PHMRC. The three datasets correspond to the main questionnaire subcomponents: neonate, child, and adult. The individual VAs are matched with "gold standard" diagnoses of underlying causes of death, which were established from medical records using stringent diagnostic criteria, including laboratory, pathology and medical imaging findings. All "open narrative" portions of the VAs were parsed for individual words or stems, which are included as variables in the final dataset, to remove any potentially identifying information in that portion of the interview. Variables that were analyzed as "health care experience" in past research are identified in the codebook.
