The Australian Burden of Disease Study 2015 provides updated estimates for over 200 diseases and injuries in Australia for 2015, 2011 and 2003.
Burden of disease measures the impact of living with illness and injury and dying prematurely. The summary measure ‘disability-adjusted life years’ (or DALY) measures the years of healthy life lost from death and illness.
More detailed estimates on burden of disease can be found under Disease burden: interactive data and Risk factors: interactive data.
