Summary 

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 (GBD 2015), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors at the global, regional, national, territorial, and, for a subset of countries, subnational level.

Estimates for deaths, disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), years lived with disability, years of life lost (YLLs), prevalence, and incidence for 32 cancer groups by age and sex for 21 regions, 195 countries and territories, and select subnational units for 1990-2015 (quinquennial) are available from the GBD Results Tool. Files available in this record are the web tables published in JAMA Oncology in December 2016 in "Global, Regional, and National Cancer Incidence, Mortality, Years of Life Lost, Years Lived with Disability, and Disability-Adjusted Life Years for 32 Cancer Groups, 1990-2015: A Systematic Analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study."
