At 3:30pm today (September 14th, 2017), the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) launched the 2016 Global Burden of Disease (GBD) - a comprehensive data set on the risks, injuries and diseases that impact the number of healthy years due to various factors; across gender, age groups, and time.
GBD Compare (https://vizhub.healthdata.org/gbd-compare/) now contains the data from the 2016 round of analysis.
You can now analyze updated data about the world's health levels and trends from 1990 to 2016 in this interactive tool. Use treemaps, maps, arrow diagrams, and other charts to compare causes and risks within a country, compare countries within regions or the world, and explore patterns and trends by country, age, and gender. Drill from a global view into specific details.
Compare expected and observed trends. Watch how disease patterns have changed over time. See which causes of death and disability are having more impact and which are waning.
You can download the raw data, for non-commercial purposes, using the GBD Results Tool(http://ghdx.healthdata.org/gbd-results-tool).
You can use the Data Sources Tool (http://ghdx.healthdata.org/gbd-2016/data-input-sources) to explore the input data used in creating the 2016 Global Burden of Disease.
If you want to browse, reuse, or improve the code used in the production of the GBD, it is publicly available on Github (https://github.com/ihmeuw/ihme-modeling).
