Diseases and associated risk factors

Use the interactive graph below to explore a disease or injury to find out their associated risk factors and the impact on burden in Australia in 2015.

The disease groups or diseases shown are limited to those contributing a significant amount of burden in Australia and have risk factors that were investigated in the Australian Burden of Disease Study 2015.

By selecting a disease group and a specific disease or injury, the risk factors that contribute to the development of the disease or injury, the proportion of disease burden each risk factor contributes and the number of total burden in 2015 (DALY) are displayed. Note that it is not appropriate to sum the proportion of disease burden contributed by each risk factor displayed as the calculations were produced independently.

Further information on the combined impact of associated risk factors for a specific disease or injury are shown when hovering over the disease or injury.
