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.

As part of this study, the health burden associated with systolic blood pressure (SBP) ≥ 110-115 mm HG and SBP ≥ 140 mm HG (hypertension) was analyzed. Estimates for deaths, YLLs, YLDs, and DALYs attributable to SBP ≥ 110-115 mm HG (high systolic blood pressure) 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 include deaths and DALYs attributable to hypertension and the web tables published in JAMA in January 2017 in "Global Burden of Hypertension and Systolic Blood Pressure of at least 110 to 115 mm HG, 1990-2015."
