GBD 2017: Data Portal

2018

This portal, from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), contains data and resources from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (GBD 2017) released in November 2018. It provides links to country profiles and data visualizations, as well as the GBD Results Tool, the Global Health Data Exchange (GHDx) Records, and the Data Input Sources Tool. In addition, a number of supplementary references can be accessed, along with the GBD 2016 Lancet articles and the code used to generate the study's results. A guide to GBD's suite of web-based tools provides an overview of what data is available in each tool.

The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) studies form the largest-ever systematic effort to describe the distribution and causes of a wide array of major diseases, injuries, and health risk factors by examining national and sub-national data across populations worldwide from 1990 to the present. Led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, it is a global effort, with more than 2,300 researchers from 130 countries, including numerous low- and middle-income countries, participating in the most recent update. Estimates from the GBD study may differ from national statistics due to differences in data sources and methodology.
