IHME research produced estimates for life expectancy and cause-specific mortality at the census tract level for King County, Washington, for 1990-2014. The estimates were generated using death registration data from the Center for Health Statistics, Washington State Department of Health; population counts by age group, sex, and census tract from the Washington State Office of Financial Management; the cause list developed for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015; and the application of small area estimation models. This dataset, downloadable via the "Files" tab above, provides estimates for life expectancy at birth, mortality rates, and years of life lost rates for 152 causes of death by age and sex for 397 census tracts. Results of the study were published in The Lancet Public Health in September 2017 in "Variation in life expectancy and mortality by cause among neighbourhoods in King County, WA, USA, 1990–2014: a census tract-level analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015."
