Eighteen percent of the world's population lives in India, and many states of India have populations similar to those of large countries. Action to effectively improve population health in India requires availability of reliable and comprehensive state-level estimates of disease burden and risk factors over time. Such comprehensive estimates have not been available so far for all major diseases and risk factors. Thus, we aimed to estimate the disease burden and risk factors in every state of India as part of the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) Study 2016.
Our data visualizations allow you to see patterns and follow trends that are not readily apparent in the numbers themselves. Here you can watch how trends in mortality change over time, choose countries to compare progress in a variety of health areas, or see how countries compare against each other on a global map.
IHME’s policy reports help put our innovative research into action by translating scientific findings in ways that highlight specific policy implications. We produce a wide variety of policy reports, including topic- and country-specific publications and an annually updated report on global health financing.
IHME researchers produce numerous scientific, peer-reviewed research articles each year on a range of topics. Each research study undergoes rigorous internal and external review prior to publication in leading scientific and academic journals.
