BACKGROUND Young people aged 10-24 years represent 27% of the world's population. [...] Key MethodMETHODS We used data from WHO's 2004 Global Burden of Disease study. Cause-specific disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) for young people aged 10-24 years were estimated by WHO region on the basis of available data for incidence, prevalence, severity, and mortality. WHO member states were classified into low-income, middle-income, and high-income countries, and into WHO regions.Expand
Global burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors for young people's health during 1990–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013
TLDR
The past, present, and anticipated burden of disease in young people aged 10-24 years from 1990 to 2013 is reported using data on mortality, disability, injuries, and health risk factors. Expand
Global burden of mental disorders among children aged 5–14 years
TLDR
The results of this work should improve health care if policy-makers use them to develop health policies to meet the real needs of populations (especially children) today. Expand
Burden of disease in adolescents and young people in Spain.
TLDR
The burden of disease expressed in DALYs can define the loss of health in adolescents and young people and at these ages, health promotion and protection are essential to prevent the onset of disease in adulthood. Expand
Burden of disease in adolescents and young people in Spain
TLDR
The burden of disease expressed in DALYs can define the loss of health in adolescents and young people and at these ages, health promotion and protection are essential to prevent the onset of disease in adulthood. Expand
Change in burden of disease in UK children and young people (0-24 years) over the past 20 years and estimation of potential burden in 2040: analysis using Global Burden of Disease (GBD) data.
TLDR
Forecast increases in DALYS from mental health problems, other adolescent health issues and the consequences of neonatal survival, such as neuro-disability and epilepsy, have potential implications for the training of paediatricians and workforce needs over the next two decades. Expand
Contribution of chronic diseases to the disability burden in a population 15 years and older, Belgium, 1997–2008
TLDR
To reduce the burden of disability in Belgium, interventions should target musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases especially among elderly, and attention should also be given to depression in young individuals. Expand
Contribution of chronic diseases to the mild and severe disability burden in Belgium
TLDR
The results indicate that the assessment of the contribution of chronic diseases on disability is more informative if different levels of disability are taken into consideration. Expand
A contemporary picture of the burden of death and disability in Indian adolescents: data from the Global Burden of Disease Study.
TLDR
For both younger and older adolescent boys and for older adolescent girls, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and injuries are responsible for a greater number of deaths and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) than communicable diseases. Expand
Improving the estimation of the burden of risk factors: an illustrative comparison of methods to measure smoking-attributable mortality
TLDR
The wider use of multivariable risk assessment approach as an alternative to population-attributable fraction methods is proposed and has several advantages, including: controlling for confounders, accounting for complexities in the relationship between multiple exposures and covariates, using consistent definitions of exposure, and using specific measures of risk derived internally from the study population. Expand
Global risk factor rankings: the importance of age-based health loss inequities caused by alcohol and other risk factors
TLDR
It is confirmed that the relative importance of risk factors is age-dependent, and preventing harms caused by various modifiable risk factors using interventions that target people of different ages should be a priority, especially since easily implemented and cost-effective public health interventions exist.

Sensitivity and Uncertainty Analyses for Burden of Disease and Risk Factor Estimates
TLDR
Sensitivity analysis can be used to examine the effects of social values that have been incorporated into the design of the disability–adjusted life year (DALY), where age weight is the most controversial value built into the DALY. Expand
Projections of Global Mortality and Burden of Disease from 2002 to 2030
TLDR
These projections represent a set of three visions of the future for population health, based on certain explicit assumptions, which enable us to appreciate better the implications for health and health policy of currently observed trends, and the likely impact of fairly certain future trends. Expand
Global burden of disease and risk factors
TLDR
Global Burden of Disease and Risk Factors examines the comparative importance of diseases, injuries, and risk factors; it incorporates a range of new data sources to develop consistent estimates of incidence, prevalence, severity and duration, and mortality for 136 major diseases and injuries. Expand
Comparative Quantification of Mortality and Burden of Disease Attributable to Selected Risk Factors
TLDR
Most estimates of morbidity and mortality due to risk factors in the context of methodological traditions of individual risk factors and for selected populations have been affected by the following shortcomings, which limit comparability. Expand
A transition in health status from childhood to adulthood and associated lifestyle risk factors: a 13-year interval follow-up study in South Africa
TLDR
Findings indicate that the transition in health status recorded elsewhere in the world can be demonstrated in this South African group of young adults who participated as children in the VAPS during 1990. Expand
On the comparable quantification of health risks: lessons from the Global Burden of Disease Study.
TLDR
It is recommended that future assessments should focus on avoidable and attributable burden based on the plausible minimum risk counterfactual distribution of exposure, and four types of distributions of exposure that could be used as thecounterfactual distributions are identified. Expand
