Burden of disease in Australia
Use the interactive graphs to explore the number or rate of total burden (DALY), non-fatal burden (YLD), fatal burden (YLL) and deaths in Australia by disease or injury in 2003, 2011, 2015 and 2018.
See Chapter 2 in the Australian Burden of Disease Study: impact and causes of illness and death in Australia 2018 report for more information on total burden (DALY).
This interactive data visualisation gives an overview of burden of disease in Australia. There are 3 sections which can be customised to report data according to type of burden, year, sex, disease group and disease. The first section is a sentence which reports the total amount and rate of burden (per 1,000 population) for the selected type of burden, year, sex, disease group and disease. The second section is a column chart which reports the amount of burden by 5-year age groups for the selected type of burden, year, sex, disease group and disease. A line graph is superimposed on the column chart to show the rate of burden (per 1,000 population) by 5-year age groups. The third section is a tree map showing the amount of burden due to each disease and injury for the selected type of burden, year, sex and disease group. Each rectangle within the tree map represents a different disease or injury, is shaded according to the disease group it belongs to and is sized proportionately to the amount of burden the disease or injury caused.
