The Australian Burden of Disease Study 2011 provides updated estimates for over 200 diseases and injuries in Australia and for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population for 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 reports and statistics on burden of disease can be found under Chronic disease and Life expectancy & deaths.
