Estimates for 2000–2012


DISEASE BURDEN

The latest global, regional and country-level estimates of cause-specific disability-adjusted life year (DALYs), years of life lost (YLL) and years lost due to disability (YLD) for the year 2000 and 2012 are available for download below.

A summary of data sources and methods is available below. Differences between these DALY estimates for 2000–2012 and estimates previously published by WHO should not be interpreted as representing time trends. Estimates for earlier years are not generally comparable due to changes in methods and data. In particular, the main DALY estimates published by WHO in the past incorporated age-weighting and time discounting and a different standard for calculation of years of life lost (YLL).
