Disability Weights

$179 / year

This dataset contains information of GBD (Global Burden of Disease) 2015 sequelae, health states, health state lay descriptions and disability weights.

Complexity

Disability weights, which represent the magnitude of health loss associated with specific health outcomes, are used to calculate years lived with disability for these outcomes in a given population. The weights are measured on a scale from 0 to 1, where 0 equals a state of full health and 1 equals death. This dataset provides the disability weights for the 235 unique health states used to estimate nonfatal health outcomes for the GBD 2015 study. These data were published in The Lancet in October 2016 in “Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 310 diseases and injuries, 1990-2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015.”
