To understand and address the great disparities in health and health spending across the United States – a country spending more on health care than any other – IHME measures health throughout the US, using our library of health data, the world’s largest and most comprehensive, and a global collaborator network of more than 3,500 physicians, researchers, policymakers, and analysts. IHME identifies, investigates, and interprets the causes and effects of disease, injury, and death for every year since 1990, and provides evidence and tools enabling stakeholders to interpret and make results relevant for their communities.
Analyze updated data about the world’s health levels and trends from 1990 to 2017 in this interactive tool using estimates from the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study. Compare causes and risks within a country (now at the US state-level), compare countries with regions or the world, and explore patterns and trends by country, age, and gender.
With this interactive map, you can explore health trends in the United States at the county level for both sexes for cancer, 21 major causes of death, life expectancy, alcohol, smoking, hypertension, obesity, physical activity, and diabetes.
