Summary 

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (GBD 2019), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors for 204 countries and territories and selected subnational locations.

This dataset provides annual estimates for 1950–2019 for numbers of deaths, mortality rate, and probability of death by sex for 6 age groups under 5 years: 0–6 days (early neonatal), 7–27 days (late neonatal), 1–5 months, 6–11 months, 12–23 months, and 2–4 years. There were 7417 sources used to produce these estimates. These included 28,016 location-years of vital registration data, 481 surveys with complete birth histories, and 1081 sources on summary birth histories.
