Research Articles

IHME researchers produce numerous scientific, peer-reviewed research articles each year across our four research areas: Measuring Health, Tracking Performance, Maximizing Impact, and Innovative Measurement Systems. Each research study undergoes rigorous internal and external review prior to publication in leading scientific and academic journals.
