The Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 (GBD 2015), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors at the global, regional, national, territorial, and, for a subset of countries, subnational level. This dataset provides population estimates for 21 GBD regions, 195 countries and territories, and 4 United Kingdom subnational units by age and sex for 1970-2015. Data sources used to produce these estimates include World Population Prospects: 2015 Revision, from the United Nations Population Division, and the WHO Human Mortality Database.
