Global Burden of DIsease - Ireland Profile
Global Burden of Disease (GBD) country profiles provide customized reports that summarize changes in countries’ health between 1990 and 2010. First, the profiles highlight declines in mortality across different age groups and sexes. Second, these reports show separately the leading diseases and injuries that cause people to die prematurely and become disabled. Third, the top diseases and injuries are ranked using a combined metric of premature death and disability, the disability-adjusted life year (DALYs). Fourth, the main risk factors attributable to different diseases and injuries are shown. Finally, “benchmarking” tables and figures compare a country’s health progress to that of its peers, called “comparator countries.”
