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 under-5 mortality (5q0, or ages 0-4) and adult mortality (45q15, or ages 15-59), as expressed by probability of death, by sex for 1950-2019. For under-5 mortality estimation, 7417 sources were used. These included 28,016 location-years of vital registration data, 481 surveys with complete birth histories, and 1081 sources on summary birth histories. For adult mortality, 7355 sources were used. These included 7000 location-years of vital registration and 322 location-years of sample vital registration, 66 sources of household deaths, 102 censuses, and 133 surveys.
