BACKGROUND Measurement of the global burden of disease with disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) requires disability weights that quantify health losses for all non-fatal consequences of disease and injury. There has been extensive debate about a range of conceptual and methodological issues concerning the definition and measurement of these weights. Our primary objective was a comprehensive re-estimation of disability weights for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 through a large-scale… Expand

Disability weights for the Global Burden of Disease 2013 study.
TLDR
This study substantially expands the empirical basis for assessment of non-fatal outcomes in the GBD study and substantiates the notion that disability weights are sensitive to particular details in descriptions of health states, but robust to duration of outcomes. Expand
Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 291 diseases and injuries in 21 regions, 1990–2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010
TLDR
The results for 1990 and 2010 supersede all previously published Global Burden of Disease results and highlight the importance of understanding local burden of disease and setting goals and targets for the post-2015 agenda taking such patterns into account. Expand
Assessing disability weights based on the responses of 30,660 people from four European countries
TLDR
Assessment of the feasibility of rescaling based on a discrete choice formulation of the PHE question indicated that this approach may not be suitable for use in a web-based survey of the general population, as well as an alternative approach using non-parametric regression. Expand
Disability Weights Measurement for 228 Causes of Disease in the Korean Burden of Disease Study 2012
TLDR
It is shown that disability weights can be estimated based on a PC by including 'full health' and 'being dead' as anchor points without resorting to a person trade-off. Expand
The prevalence and burden of mental and substance use disorders in Australia: Findings from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015
TLDR
The Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 found that mental and substance use disorders were leading contributors to disease burden in Australia, and effective population-level preventions strategies are required in addition to effective interventions of sufficient duration and coverage. Expand
Disability weights in the global burden of disease 2010 study: two steps forward, one step back?
TLDR
Although the new methods used to calculate the GBD are a considerable improvement over previous ones, central concerns about the utility of DALYs for making decisions about the prioritization of health conditions and the allocation of resources remain unaddressed. Expand
Estimating distributions of health state severity for the global burden of disease study
TLDR
There is large heterogeneity in the disabling severity of conditions among individuals in the Global Burden of Disease study, and the GBD 2013 approach allows explicit accounting for this heterogeneity in GBD estimates. Expand
Review of disability weight studies: comparison of methodological choices and values
TLDR
In terms of comparability of the resulting YLDs, the global use of the same set of disability weights has advantages, though practical constraints and intercultural differences should be taken into account into such a set. Expand
Disability weights from a household survey in a low socio-economic setting: how does it compare to the global burden of disease 2010 study?
TLDR
This study derived disability weights for a resource-constrained community in Cape Town, South Africa, and interrogated whether the GBD 2010 disability weights necessarily represent the preferences of economically disadvantaged communities. Expand
Years lived with disability (YLDs) for 1160 sequelae of 289 diseases and injuries 1990–2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010
TLDR
Prevalence and severity of health loss were weakly correlated and age-specific prevalence of YLDs increased with age in all regions and has decreased slightly from 1990 to 2010, but population growth and ageing have increased YLD numbers and crude rates over the past two decades. Expand

Novel empirical disability weights to assess the burden of non-fatal injury
TLDR
YLD calculations based on global burden of disease disability weights underestimate the size of the injury problem by ignoring temporary health consequences, and application of novel empirical disability weights, derived using the annual profile approach, may improve calculations on the burden of non-fatal injury.

TLDR
It is argued that the lack of consideration of realistic contexts results in a measure that will underestimate the burden associated with morbidity in disadvantaged populations and overestimate the burden in advantaged populations. Expand
The Australian Burden of Disease Study: measuring the loss of health from diseases, injuries and risk factors
TLDR
This is an overview of the first burden of disease and injury studies carried out in Australia, finding depression to be the top‐ranking cause of non‐fatal disease burden and tobacco smoking causes an estimated 10% of the total disease burden. Expand

TLDR
It is argued that the notion of disability embodied in DALYs does not accord with that in WHO’s International Classifi cation of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF), and that DALys are a poor indicator of the public-health interventions that improve the lives of people with disabilities.
