Consequences of diseases and injuries.
Skilled birth attendance coverage
The proportion of pregnant women 15 to 49 years old who delivered with a skilled birth attendant (a doctor, nurse, midwife, or clinical officer).
Socio-demographic Index (SDI)
A summary measure that identifies where countries or other geographic areas sit on the spectrum of development. Expressed on a scale of 0 to 1, SDI is a composite average of the rankings of the incomes per capita, average educational attainment, and fertility rates of all areas in the GBD study.
Summary exposure value (SEV)
A measure of a population’s exposure to a risk factor that takes into account the extent of exposure by risk level and the severity of that risk’s contribution to disease burden. SEV takes the value zero when no excess risk for a population exists and the value one when the population is at the highest level of risk; we report SEV on a scale from 0% to 100% to emphasize that it is risk-weighted prevalence.
