The global burden of injury: incidence, mortality, disability-adjusted life years and time trends from the Global Burden of Disease study 2013

An overview of injury estimates from the 2013 update of GBD is provided, with detailed information on incidence, mortality, DALYs and rates of change from 1990 to 2013 for 26 causes of injury, globally, by region and by country.

Disability-Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) for Injuries Using Death Certificates and Hospital Discharge Survey by the Korean Burden of Disease Study 2012

This study estimated national burdens of injuries in Korea using more reliable data and disability weightings to contribute to the reliable evaluation of injury burden and a better understanding of injury-related health status using nation-specific, dependable data.

Disability-Adjusted Life-Years (DALYs) for 315 Diseases and Injuries and Healthy Life Expectancy (HALE) in Iran and its Neighboring Countries, 1990-2015: Findings from Global Burden of Disease Study 2015.

The levels and trends in causes of DALYs, life expectancy, and HALE generally show similarities between the 16 countries, although differences exist; the pattern of change is similar in almost all 16 countries.

Calculating disability-adjusted life years to quantify burden of disease

The disability-adjusted life year’s basic features are summarized and an ‘‘Appendix’’ includes R code to calculate DALYs.



Measuring burden of disease in two inner London boroughs using Disability Adjusted Life Years.

A pragmatic approach is used to estimate overall disease burden providing a local, more comprehensive picture with important differences in spend by disease and health authority area, however, a more detailed approach to support decisions about prioritization based on modelling interventions that impact on avoidable burden of disease is recommended.

Singapore's burden of disease and injury 2004.

This study provides an objective and systematic assessment of the fatal and nonfatal health conditions in Singapore to support priority setting in public health policies and research.

Estimating the burden of disease in one Swiss canton: what do disability adjusted life years (DALY) tell us?

Some of the most important problems identified-depression, osteoarthritis and alcohol abuse-would have been overlooked in an analysis based solely on mortality data, and the most striking finding is the importance of mental health problems.

The burden of disease and injury in the United States 1996

Estimating DALYs specifically for the United States provides a comprehensive assessment of health problems for this country compared to what is available using mortality data alone.

Applying burden of disease methods in developing countries: a case study from Pakistan.

The burden of disease in countries such as Pakistan can be assessed by using composite indicators and the HeaLY method provides an explicit framework for national health information assessment.
