Summary 

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (GBD 2016), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors for 195 countries and territories and at the subnational level for a subset of countries.

This set of location hierarchy files contains the GBD 2016 reporting hierarchy for the full set of locations estimated for the study, including all subnational locations. It also includes the hierarchy for the set of locations for which results are available in the GBD Results Tool, and data visualizations such as GBD Compare, as of September 2017. (Please note that this latter hierarchy will change as results for additional subnational results are released.) These files files can help users aggregate GBD 2016 results by GBD super region and region, Socio-demographic Index (SDI) grouping, and other location levels.
