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. These location hierarchies files contain the GBD 2015 reporting hierarchy and a number of other hierarchies, which will allow GBD 2015 results users to aggregate results by location in various ways (by GBD regions, World Bank regions, OECD countries, European Union countries, etc.).
