IHME research, published in Population Health Metrics in September 2010, introduces a new approach for generating estimates of health trends using small area measurement methods. The study, A novel framework for validating and applying standardized small area measurement strategies, provides estimates for diabetes prevalence by sex, difference between county and state prevalence, and a county ranking. Results show large variation in county-level diabetes prevalence rates.
IHME research, published in The Lancet, provides estimates of the educational attainment of men and women for 175 countries by age group and sex, and includes confidence intervals. The study, "Increased educational attainment and its impact on child mortality: a systematic analysis in 175 countries from 1970 to 2009," examines gains in women's education and their contribution to declines in child mortality in the past 40 years.
IHME results, published in November 2010, provide a global assessment of trends in development assistance for health (DAH) from 1990 to 2008 and preliminary estimates for 2009 and 2010. The report, Financing Global Health 2010: Development Assistance and Country Spending in Economic Uncertainty, compiles contributions by all significant public and private channels of development assistance for improving health outcomes and strengthening health systems in low- and middle-income countries.
IHME research, published in The Lancet in 2008. The study, "Tracking progress towards universal childhood immunisation and the impact of global initiatives: a systematic analysis of three-dose diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis immunisation coverage," provides estimates with confidence intervals of the coverage of three-dose diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTP3) vaccination. The estimates take into account all publicly available data, including data from routine reporting systems and nationally representative surveys.
These are IHME results from the paper "Worldwide mortality in men and women aged 15–59 years from 1970 to 2010: a systematic analysis," published online in The Lancet on April 30 2010. This dataset provides global estimates of adult mortality risk, 45q15 (probability of death between the ages of 15 years and 60 years), between 1970 and 2010.
IHME research produced a global assessment of levels and trends in maternal mortality for the years 1980-2008. This dataset provides global, regional, and national level estimates for maternal mortality ratio (MMR - the number of maternal deaths per 100,000 live births) as well as the number of maternal deaths. Results of the study were published online in The Lancet in April 2010 in "Maternal mortality for 181 countries, 1980-2008: a systematic analysis of progress towards Millennium Development Goal 5."
IHME research assessed global under-5 mortality trends. This dataset provides estimates of neonatal, postneonatal, childhood, and under-5 mortality for 187 countries between 1970 and 2010. Results of the study were published online in The Lancet in May 2010 in "Neonatal, postneonatal, childhood, and under-5 mortality for 187 countries, 1970-2010: a systematic analysis of progress towards Millennium Development Goal 4."
