Summary 

The GBD Study 2010 estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors globally and for 21 regions for 1990 and 2010. The study was implemented as a collaboration of Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) as coordinating center, University of Queensland, Harvard School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, University of Tokyo, Imperial College London, and WHO.

This dataset provides results for the burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factors, including the contribution to specific diseases and injuries. Metrics provided are deaths, years of life lost (YLLs), years lived with disability (YLDs), and disability-adjusted life years (DALYs). Results are available for 1990 and 2010 by age and sex with uncertainty intervals. The results were published in The Lancet in December 2012 in "A comparative risk assessment of burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factor and risk factor clusters."
