This dataset resulted from the study published in The Lancet in September 2017 in “Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 328 diseases and injuries for 195 countries, 1990–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016”. These diseases are from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 and include groups of the following diseases: Communicable, maternal, neonatal, and nutritional diseases, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, Diarrhoea, lower respiratory, and other common infectious diseases, Neglected tropical diseases and malaria, Maternal disorders, Neonatal disorders, Nutritional deficiencies, and Other communicable, maternal, neonatal, and nutritional diseases, Noncommunicable diseases, Neoplasms, Cardiovascular diseases, Chronic respiratory diseases, chronic respiratory diseases, Cirrhosis and other chronic liver diseases, Digestive diseases, Neurological disorders, Mental and substance use disorders, Diabetes, urogenital, blood, and endocrine diseases, Musculoskeletal disorders, Other non-communicable diseases, Transport injuries, Unintentional injuries, Self-harm and interpersonal violence and Forces of nature, conflict and terrorism, and executions and police conflict.
The incidence of the nine impairments, certain neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), and causes with only birth prevalence is not calculated. Blank cells mean that no estimate is available. Cells with zeros indicate an estimate smaller than 500 as the table presents prevalence and incidence counts in thousands. Percentages with the symbol * are statistically significant. This dataset can be used to assess prevalence, incidence, and years lived with disability (YLDs) for 328 causes in 195 countries and territories from 1990 and 2016.
