Global Human Capital Estimates 1990-2016 File icon

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.

Africa Under-5 Diarrhea Incidence, Prevalence, and Mortality Geospatial Estimates 2000-2015 File icon

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.

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
  • CSV files of aggregated estimates for each country at the first and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates

Global HIV/AIDS Spending 2000-2015 File icon

Research by the Global Burden of Disease Health Financing Collaborator Network estimated HIV/AIDs spending for 188 countries for 2000-2015. The estimates cover HIV/AIDS spending disaggregated by source into government spending, out-of-pocket, prepaid private, and development assistance for health. Spending is also disaggregated by function, including care and treatment, prevention, and other spending. HIV/AIDS spending by source and function was estimated based on a diverse set of data, including country reports, National AIDS Spending Assessments, and National Health Accounts. Development assistance for health data was sourced from budgets, project records, and financial statements. Results of the study 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."

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."

GDP and all-sector government spending were extracted for 1980–2015 and used with retrospective health spending estimates for 1995-2015 to forecast GDP, all-sector government spending, and health spending through 2040. Results of the study were published in The Lancet in April 2018 in "Trends in future health financing and coverage: future health spending and universal health coverage in 188 countries, 2016–2040."
