The Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (GBD 2016), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors for 195 countries and territories and at the subnational level for a subset of countries.
As part of this study, estimates for alcohol use and the disease burden attributable to this risk factor were produced by sex, age group, and year for 195 countries and territories for 1990-2016. Estimates for alcohol-attributable deaths and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) are available from the GBD Results Tool. Files available in this record include estimates of the prevalence of current drinking, abstention, and the population average of standard drinks daily. Study results were published in The Lancet in August 2018 in “Alcohol use and burden: a systematic analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 for 195 countries and territories, 1990–2016.”
Columns Gender ID which is 1 for male and 2 for female and Age Group ID where alcohol prevalence of current drinking, abstention, and the population average of standard drinks daily was estimated with corresponding gender and age group were also deleted from the original dataset.
