BURDEN OF DISEASE

Summary death and Disability-Adjusted Life Year (DALY) estimates for 2004 by cause for WHO Member States can be downloaded below. The Excel spreadsheets contain estimates of numbers, crude rates and age-standardized rates, as well as information on data sources and levels of evidence. A consultation on these estimates was carried out with WHO Member States in 2008. They represent the best estimates of WHO, based on the evidence available to it in 2008, 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.

HEALTHY LIFE EXPECTANCY (HALE)

HALE is based on life expectancy, but includes an adjustment for time spent in poor health. This indicator measures the equivalent number of years in full health that a newborn child can expect to live based on the current mortality rates and prevalence distribution of health states in the population. Estimates of healthy life expectancy at birth and age 60, and expected lost years of healthy life at birth, by sex and WHO Member State are available for 2002.

LIFE EXPECTANCY (LE)

LE measures the number of years that a newborn can expect to live based on the current mortality rates. Estimates of healthy life expectancy at birth and age 60, and expected lost years of healthy life at birth, by sex and WHO Member State are available for 2002.
