Data Collection Instruments

For many parts of the world, good data on health are not readily available. In some cases, the infrastructure and resources are not available to support a fully functioning health information system. In others, core systems exist but there is a need to augment existing data with new data collection. Surveys can be a critically important component of a health information system and play an important role in achieving an integrated surveillance system that brings together information from multiple sources to create as complete as possible picture of population health. In various research projects, IHME is creating and testing survey instruments.

Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2010 Health Measurement survey instruments
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.
Monitoring Disparities in Chronic Conditions survey instruments
Although these disparities have been explored at the national level where federal data systems are available, there are no systems that provide local data on race/ethnic disparities with regard to domains such as health outcomes, health risk factors, health services, and socioeconomic context.
