Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2010 Health Measurement survey instruments
Data Collection Instrument
The Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2010 Health Measurement Survey aims to measure the magnitude of different health problems in terms of loss of healthy life.
Disability-adjusted life years are the metric used to quantify losses in the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study from either mortality or nonfatal outcomes. Health state severity weights provide the bridge between mortality and nonfatal outcomes, by quantifying overall health levels associated with different states on a continuum between perfect health (0) and death (1).
- Derive weights for around 250 sequelae, which capture the major health consequences of all of the causes in the study.
- Address criticisms of previous approaches.
- Focus on valuations from community respondents.
- Use techniques that are well-matched to the intended measurement construct.
- Provide transparent, standardized, and replicable approach that will easily accommodate additions or amendments.
Community surveys in six sites (Bangladesh, Indonesia, Pemba, Peru, South Africa, and United States [survey conducted by telephone]), focusing on paired comparison and time trade-off questions for approximately 100 sequelae.
- Open access Web-based survey including all sequelae, and paired comparison, time trade-off, and population equivalence questions.
