IHME strives to make its data freely and easily accessible and to provide innovative ways to visualize complex topics. Our data visualizations allow you to see patterns and follow trends that are not readily apparent in the numbers themselves. Here you can watch how trends in mortality change over time, choose countries to compare progress in a variety of health areas, or see how countries compare against each other on a global map.

GBD Compare is new to IHME’s lineup of visualizations and has countless options for exploring health data. To help you navigate this new tool, we have a video tutorial that will orient you to its controls and show you how to interact with the data. You can also watch the video of IHME Director Christopher Murray presenting the tools for the first time at the public launch on March 5, 2013.
