Regional Climate and Hydrologic Change in the Northern U.S. Rockies and Pacific Northwest: Internally Consistent Projections of Future Climate for Resource Management

J.S. Littell, M.M. Elsner, G.S. Mauger, E.R. Lutz, A.F. Hamlet & E.P. Salathé
Planning for the effects of climate change on natural resources often requires detailed projections of future climate at finer spatial scales consistent with the processes managers typically consider. While it is numerically possible to produce downscaled climate at very fine scales (< 5km), accurate estimation at these scales is difficult and less certain without very detailed local information. Both the absence of a sufficiently dense network of long-term climate observations and the presence of local...

Global Health Expenditures by Services and Providers 2000-2017

This dataset includes collected country-reported health expenditures and national health expenditure estimates for 195 countries from 2000 through 2017 by the System of Health Accounts (SHA) healthcare function (HC) and healthcare provider (HP) categories. The estimates are saved in level space, per capita, and as a share of total health spending. The estimates were created using 1662 country-years and 110,070 data points of health expenditures extracted and compiled from existing National Health Accounts (NHA).

Global Tuberculosis Molecular Epidemiology Systematic Review Dataset

IHME and collaborating researchers conducted a study to map the global distribution of genotypes of bacterial strains that cause tuberculosis disease and examine whether any epidemiologically relevant clinical characteristics were associated with those genotypes. They performed a systematic review to create a comprehensive dataset of human TB molecular epidemiology studies that used representative sampling techniques. Data were extracted and synthesized from 206 studies that reported prevalence of bacterial genotypes (representing over 200,000 bacterial isolates collected...

Africa – Travel Time to Health Facilities and Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Outbreak Preparedness

Country profiles were created for 43 sub-Saharan African countries highlighting travel times to the most accessible health facility from areas with Viral Hemorrhagic Fever (VHF) spillover event potential, travel times to the nearest at-risk location for VHFs, and an assessment of how travel times would change given new infrastructure in a country. This dataset includes the following: - Three PDF files per country - Country-specific estimates of the travel times described above - Maps of...

Geopositioned Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus Occurrences Database 1983-2017

This dataset contains 882 unique occurrences of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) extracted from 217 reports published between October 2012 and February 2018. Occurrences of MERS-CoV among humans, mammals, and environmental sources were extracted and geopositioned to the highest resolution possible (up to 5x5km). Special attention was given to spillover events (i.e., humans becoming infected from mammals). Thus, MERS-CoV occurrences meeting the criteria for index or unspecified cases are assigned their own rows; alternatively,...

Africa Child Growth Failure Geospatial Estimates 2000-2015

Estimates were produced for under-5 stunting, wasting, and underweight prevalence at the 5x5 km-level in 51 countries in Africa between 2000-2015. These estimates were produced using individual-level height, weight, and age data for children under 5 and geographical locations from household survey series including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Mulitple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), Living Standards Measurement Study (LSMS), and Core Welfare Indicators Questionnaire Survey (CWIQ). This dataset includes both GeoTIFF raster files for...

Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (GBD 2013) HIV, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Incidence, Prevalence, and Mortality 1990-2013

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (GBD 2013), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors globally and for 21 regions. The sixth Millennium Development Goal (MDG 6) brought special attention to HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria. This dataset provides estimates of mortality and incidence for each of the three diseases, as well as prevalence of HIV and tuberculosis, for 188 countries, 21 regions,...

Ghana Access, Bottlenecks, Costs, and Equity Project 2012

The Access, Bottlenecks, Costs, and Equity (ABCE) project is a multipronged and multicountry research collaboration focused on understanding what drives and hinders health service provision. The ABCE Facility Survey in Ghana collected data from a nationally representative sample of health facilities on services offered, expenditure, revenue, personnel by category, and other variables related to facility operations. The dataset available for download provides information at the facility-year level.

Kenya Access, Bottlenecks, Costs, and Equity Project 2012

The Access, Bottlenecks, Costs, and Equity (ABCE) project is a multipronged and multicountry research collaboration focused on understanding what drives and hinders health service provision. Three datasets resulting from the ABCE project in Kenya are available for download: results of a nationally representative facility survey which gathered information on services offered, expenditure, revenue, personnel by category, and other variables related to facility operations; data collected in patient exit interviews conducted after patients visited facilities in...

Mexico - Yucatán Under 5 Verbal Autopsy and Medical Record Review Survey 2017

These data are the product of a collaboration between the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) and the Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán (UADY): a cross-sectional study exploring the delays faced during the search for care by caregivers of children under the age of 5 who died in the State of Yucatán, Mexico, during 2015–2016. Two datasets resulting from the project are available for download. The first contains results of a household census in which...

Xinjiang and the Modern Chinese State

Justin Jacobs
Xinjiang and the Modern Chinese State views modern Chinese political history from the perspective of Han officials who were tasked with governing Xinjiang. This region, inhabited by Uighurs, Kazaks, Hui, Mongols, Kirgiz, and Tajiks, is also the last significant “colony” of the former Qing empire to remain under continuous Chinese rule throughout the twentieth century. By foregrounding the responses of Chinese and other imperial elites to the growing threat of national determination across Eurasia, Justin...

Data associated with : A Decade of Variability on Jakobshavn Isbrae: Ocean Temperatures Pace Speed Through Influence on Mélange Rigidity

Ian Joughin, David Shean & Ben Smith
The speed of Greenland’s fastest glacier, Jakobshavn Isbrae, has varied substantially since its speedup in the late 1990s. Here we present observations of surface velocity, mélange rigidity, and surface elevation to examine its behaviour over the last decade. Consistent with earlier results, we find a pronounced cycle of summer speedup and thinning followed by winter slowdown and thickening. There were extended periods of rigid mélange in the winters of 2016–17 and 2017–18, concurrent with terminus...

Infant and Child Mortality Estimates by Country 1970-2010

IHME research assessed global under-5 mortality trends. This dataset provides estimates of neonatal, postneonatal, childhood, and under-5 mortality for 187 countries between 1970 and 2010. Results of the study were published online in The Lancet in May 2010 in "Neonatal, postneonatal, childhood, and under-5 mortality for 187 countries, 1970-2010: a systematic analysis of progress towards Millennium Development Goal 4."

DTP3 Immunization Coverage by Country 1986-2006

IHME research, published in The Lancet in 2008. The study, "Tracking progress towards universal childhood immunisation and the impact of global initiatives: a systematic analysis of three-dose diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis immunisation coverage," provides estimates with confidence intervals of the coverage of three-dose diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTP3) vaccination. The estimates take into account all publicly available data, including data from routine reporting systems and nationally representative surveys.
