The Global Burden of Disease Study 2021 (GBD 2021), 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 includes estimates of the burden associated with all-form tuberculosis for Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD) countries between 1990 and 2021. Tuberculosis mortality was informed by vital registration, verbal autopsy, sample-based vital registration, and mortality surveillance data. Tuberculosis morbidity data included annual case notifications, data from prevalence surveys, and estimated cause specific mortality (CSMR) of TB among HIV-positive and HIV-negative individuals
