Summary 

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (GBD 2017), 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 dataset includes full and abridged life tables with estimates for life expectancy and probability of death by location, single calendar year, age, and sex for 1950-2017. Full life tables contain estimates by single year of age. Abridged life tables contain estimates by 5-year age group. Locations covered include both GBD locations and special regions such as World Bank Income Levels. Data used to produce these tables came from vital registration (VR) systems, sample registration systems, household surveys, censuses, disease surveillance, and demographic surveillance systems (DSS).
