Disease, injury and causes of death country estimates, 2000-2012
Summary death and disability-adjusted life year (DALY) estimates for 2000-2012 by cause, age and sex, for WHO Member States, can be downloaded below. These estimates are from the second round of WHO Global Health Estimates, released in 2014. A summary of data sources and methods is available here.
Consultations on these estimates were carried out with WHO Member States, but they represent the best estimates of WHO based on the evidence available to it, rather than the official estimates of Member States. These estimates have been computed using standard categories and methods to ensure cross-national comparability. Therefore, they are not always the same as official national estimates produced using alternate, potentially equally rigorous methods, nor necessarily endorsed by specific Member States.
Due to changes in data input and some methods, these 2000-2012 estimates are not comparable to previously-released WHO estimates nor to WHO Global Heath Estimates 2015.
