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.

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,...

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...

Africa Diphtheria-Pertussis-Tetanus Vaccine Coverage Geospatial Estimates 2000-2016

Estimates were produced for diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus (DPT) vaccine coverage and dropout for children ages 12-23 months at the 5x5 km-level in 52 countries in Africa between 2000-2016. These estimates were produced using data from 183 population-based household surveys conducted in Africa between 2000 and 2016 that included dose-specific information on DPT coverage (from vaccine cards or maternal recall in the absence of vaccine cards) and subnational geographical location for children ages 12-59 months. This dataset includes...

Africa Educational Attainment Geospatial Estimates 2000-2015

Estimates were produced for average years of educational attainment for women of reproductive age (15-49), women ages 20-24, and equivalent male age groups at the 5x5 km-level in 51 countries in Africa between 2000-2015. Estimates were also generated for the disparity in years of attainment between males and females for the same ages and period. These estimates were produced using data on educational attainment and geographical locations from censuses, several household survey series, including the...

Africa Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Pandemic Potential Estimates

Estimates were produced for three stages underlying the potential of widespread epidemics for four viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) in Africa: Ebola virus disease, Marburg virus disease, Lassa fever, and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever. Stage 1, index case potential, assesses populations at risk of infection due to spillover from zoonotic hosts or vectors, identifying where index cases could present. Stage 2, outbreak potential, measures potential for secondary spread amongst humans within specific communities. Stage 3, epidemic potential,...

Low- and Middle-Income Country Neonatal, Infant, and Under-5 Mortality Geospatial Estimates 2000-2017

Annual estimates were produced for mortality probability and death counts in three age groups – neonates (0-28 days old), infants (under-1 year old), and under-5 (0-5 years old) – at the 5x5 km-level in 99 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) between 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using data on child mortality and geographical locations from censuses and several household survey series. Survey sources used include the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and UNICEF Multiple Indicator...
