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.

Life expectancy estimates by age and sex and estimates for deaths and years of life lost (YLLs) by cause, age, and sex for 21 regions, 195 countries and territories, and select subnational units for 1990-2015 are available from the GBD Results Tool. Files available in this record include select tables published in The Lancet in October 2016 in "Global, regional, and national life expectancy, all-cause and cause-specific mortality for 249 causes of death, 1980–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015."
