The GBD Study 2010 estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors globally and for 21 regions for 1990 and 2010. The study was implemented as a collaboration of IHME as coordinating center, University of Queensland, Harvard School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, University of Tokyo, Imperial College London, and WHO.

These data provide results for the burden of disease and injury in the United States: deaths, years of life lost (YLLs), years lived with disability (YLDs), and disability-adjusted life years (DALYs). The results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in July 2013 in “The state of US health, 1990-2010: burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors.”
