The Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study measures the toll of early death and disability caused by more than 300 diseases and injuries. The study produces estimates of life expectancy, causes of death, and nonfatal health loss for the US as a whole and for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Results are available by age group and sex for each cause of death and disability and more than 80 risk factors, from 1990 to the present.

Through a separate project, IHME's US county performance research compiles national and local health data from throughout the US. The research team develops new methods for small area estimation and applies these methods to track state and county-level life expectancy, risk factor prevalence, and disease and injury mortality to determine how well counties are addressing the health of their residents.

Health loss can only be properly addressed if resources, technology, and innovation are combined with an in-depth understanding of the current health spending landscape. IHME’s Disease Expenditure (DEX) research uncovers how resources are spent on US health care across health conditions, age groups, sexes, types of care, and time. These findings, in turn, can help health system researchers and policymakers identify the driving forces behind spending increases.
