Summary 

This dataset contains estimates for deaths and years of life lost (YLLs) attributable to non-optimal temperature exposure (including high temperature, low temperature, and the aggregate non-optimal temperature risk) for 204 countries, Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD) regions and super regions, and globally for the years 1990, 2010, and 2010. These estimates inform a paper published in The Lancet in August 2021 titled “Estimating the cause-specific relative risks of non-optimal temperature on daily mortality: a two-part modelling approach applied to the Global Burden of Disease Study.”
