The GBD Study 2010 estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors globally and for 21 regions for 1990 and 2010. The study was implemented as a collaboration of Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) as coordinating center, University of Queensland, Harvard School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, University of Tokyo, Imperial College London, and WHO. This dataset provides decennial results for 1970-2010 for life expectancy and results...

Development Assistance for Health Country and Regional Recipient Level Database 1990-2010

The 2012 update of the Development Assistance for Health (DAH) database enables analysis of trends in disbursements on grants/loans from key agencies by funding agency, country/geographic region, and health focus area. These DAH totals do not match those in the IHME DAH 1990-2010 database. This database only contains DAH allocable by country and/or region and does not contain DAH that could not be traced to a specific region or country.

IHME Formatted USAID VolAg Database 1990-2007

This database includes US-based non-governmental organizations' (NGOs) financial data from USAID VolAg report years 1992-2009 (covers fiscal years 1990-2007) with unique ID codes added. The VolAg reports can be found on the USAID website.

Development Assistance for Health Database 1990-2010

This is the 2012 update of the Development Assistance for Health (DAH) database, which includes estimates based on project databases, financial statements, annual reports, IRS 990s, and correspondences with agencies. It enables estimation of DAH envelope (disbursements and expenditures), trends in DAH (disbursements and expenditures) by global health institutions, and trends in DAH (disbursements and expenditures) by source of income. Also provided is a code file to generate figures based on the database.

Shifting Snowlines and Shorelines: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere and Implications for Washington State

Heidi A. Roop, Guillaume S. Mauger, Harriet Morgan, Amy K. Snover & Meade Krosby
In September 2019, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate. Both the ocean and the cryosphere — Earth’s frozen regions, including glaciers in Washington’s Cascade Range and Olympic Mountains and seasonal snowfall across the state — are showing signs of the negative impacts of human-caused climate change. This brief summarizes the Special Report and related consequences to Washington state, where the impacts...

Manufacturing, structure, and properties of crosslinked polyethylene induced by peroxides

Song Renjie
Crosslinking of polyethylene induced by peroxides can greatly improve some of its properties such as stability and impact strength. The underlying material science is well-known yet provides great potential for process optimization as well as product amelioration. In this review, the structure-processing-property relationship of crosslinked polyethylene is introduced with a focus on the chemical reaction mechanisms involved.

Low- and Middle-Income Country Under-5 Diarrhea Incidence, Prevalence, and Mortality Geospatial Estimates 2000-2017

"Annual estimates were produced for the prevalence and incidence of diarrhea and diarrhea-related mortality among children younger than 5 years of age at the 5x5 km-level for 94 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) between 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using geo-positioned data from 466 household surveys. Survey sources used include the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and UNICEF Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) series, and other country‐specific surveys. This dataset includes the following: - GeoTIFF...

Global Expected Health Spending 2018-2050

Research by the Global Burden of Disease Health Financing Collaborator Network produced projected health spending estimates for 2018-2050 for 195 countries and territories. The estimates cover total health spending, health spending disaggregated by source into three domestic financing source categories (government, out-of-pocket, and prepaid private), and development assistance for health (DAH). Retrospective health spending estimates for 1995-2017 and key covariates (including GDP per capita, total government spending, total fertility rate, and fraction of the population...

Global Child Growth Failure Geospatial Estimates 2000-2019

"Annual estimates were produced for child growth failure (CGF) among children younger than 5 years of age at the 5x5 km-level for 105 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) between 2000 and 2019. These estimates were produced using geo-positioned data from 460 household surveys, including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and other country‐specific surveys. Countries and subnational units outside of these 105 LMICs were supplemented with GBD results. This dataset...

United States Health-Care Spending Attributable to Modifiable Risk Factors 2016

This dataset is the result of a study to quantify health-care spending attributable to modifiable risk factors in the United States of America for 2016. Data from two existing studies were used to produce the estimates. The first dataset is the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s Disease Expenditure Study 2016, from which estimates of US health-care spending by condition, age, and sex were extracted. These results were merged with population attributable fraction estimates for...

China HeartRescue Global Evaluation Baseline Health Facility Survey 2015

The HeartRescue Global Project, a multi-country, multi-year effort aims to improve access and quality for acute cardiovascular disease (CVD), including ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in selected locations in China, India, and Brazil. This dataset is the product of a HeartRescue program impact evaluation. It includes results of a baseline health facility and emergency medical service (EMS) survey conducted in Beijing and Shanghai, China. Data were collected from three secondary hospitals...

Interactions of the Northern and Southern branches of the thermohaline circulation

D. McDermott
Coarse resolution models are used to investigate the influence of Southern Hemisphere processes on the Northern branch of the thermohaline circulation. The link between the zonal wind stress at the latitude of Drake Passage and the production of deep water in the Northern Hemisphere is explored. A nearly linear response to wind stress at the tip of South America is seen in northern deep water production rates in both one- and two-basin configurations. Transient studies...
