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.

This dataset measures progress towards the Millennium Development Goal 4 (MDG 4) target of reduction of child mortality by two-thirds from 1990-2015. The data provide under-5 mortality numbers and rates per 1,000 live births for 188 countries, 21 regions, and globally by age group and sex, for 1990-2013. It also includes a Shapley decomposition analysis of the change in the number of under-5 deaths related to changes in various factors, from 1990-2013. The results were published in The Lancet in May 2014 in "Global, regional, and national levels of neonatal, infant, and under-5 mortality during 1990-2013: a systematic analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013."
