Burden of disease is a measure of the years of healthy life lost from living with, or dying from disease and injury. A portion of this burden is preventable, being due to modifiable risk factors. This report provides information on the deaths and burden of disease due to risk factors included in the Australian Burden of Disease Study 2015.
This is part of the Australian Burden of Disease Study: impact and causes of illness and death in Australia 2015 report. There is also another interactive data set to explore: disease burden.
