Summary 

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (GBD 2013), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors globally and for 21 regions. The fifth Millennium Development Goal (MDG 5) established the goal of a 75% reduction in the maternal mortality ratio between 1990 and 2015.

This dataset provides the number of maternal deaths by cause and by timing with respect to delivery, and the maternal mortality ratio, for 188 countries, 21 regions, and globally by age group and sex, for 1990-2013. The results were published in The Lancet in May 2014 in “Global, regional, and national levels and causes of maternal mortality during 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013.”
