Data Visualization: Diabetes, Blood Pressure, BMI


NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC) hosts data for diabetes, blood pressure, BMI, and height. The portal provides access to a wide range of data visualizations. These include maps, line plots, ranking plots, bubble plots, stacked plots, sunburst plots, and distribution plots stratified by place and gender. The web portal also provides interactive country profiles with data synthesized across risk factors by country.

NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC) is a network of health scientists around the world that provides data on risk factors for non-communicable diseases (NCDs) for 200 countries and territories. The group works closely with the World Health Organisation (WHO), through the WHO Collaborating Centre on NCD Surveillance and Epidemiology at Imperial College London. NCD Risk Factor Collaboration pools high-quality population-based data using advanced statistical methods, designed specifically for analysing NCD risk factors. The Collaboration currently has data from over 2,545 population-based surveys from 193 countries since 1957, with nearly 129 million participants whose risk factor levels have been measured.
