Child Growth Failure Visualization - Input Data

The Child Growth Failure Visualization is an interactive data tool that shows levels and trends in growth failure at birth and in children under 5, both past and projected from 1990 to 2030. The tool also demonstrates how cases of child growth failure (stunting, wasting, and underweight) have changed due to contributing factors including population growth, Socio-demographic Index, and unsafe sanitation from 1990 to 2016 and 2000 to 2016. This dataset contains the input data...

Africa Under-5 Lower Respiratory Infection Incidence, Prevalence, and Mortality Geospatial Estimates 2000-2017

Estimates were produced for lower respiratory infection (LRI) incidence, prevalence, and mortality among children under 5 at the 5x5 km-level in 52 countries in Africa between 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using data extracted from 191 household surveys that had questions about the prevalence of cough with difficulty breathing among children under 5, and allowed for subnational geolocation. The surveys include the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), World Bank, and...

Manipulating Elastic Waves in Topological Mechanical Metamaterials

Rajesh Chanusali
Due to the recent discovery of topological insulators in condensed matter physics, a new notion of topology has emerged in association with the intrinsic dispersion behavior of a structure. In this work, we have taken this notion of topology and have shown some novel wave manipulation capabilities in one- and two-dimensional (1D and 2D) elastic systems. In particular, we have taken four different type of elastic systems. First, a 1D elastic system made of a...

Familiar Strangers: A History of Muslims in Northwest China

Jonathan Lipman
The Chinese-speaking Muslims have for centuries been an inseparable but anomalous part of Chinese society—Sinophone yet incomprehensible, local yet outsiders, normal but different. Long regarded by the Chinese government as prone to violence, they have challenged fundamental Chinese conceptions of "self" and "other" and denied the totally transforming power of Chinese civilization by tenaciously maintaining connections with Central and West Asia as well as some cultural differences from their non-Muslim neighbors. Familiar Strangers narrates a...

Where Dragon Veins Meet

Stephen Whiteman
In 1702, the second emperor of the Qing dynasty ordered construction of a new summer palace in Rehe (now Chengde, Hebei) to support his annual tours north among the court’s Inner Mongolian allies. The Mountain Estate to Escape the Heat (Bishu Shanzhuang) was strategically located at the node of mountain “veins” through which the Qing empire’s geomantic energy was said to flow. At this site, from late spring through early autumn, the Kangxi emperor presided...

Global Geo-Referenced Dengue Occurrence Database 1960-2015

IHME researchers participated in study that applied statistical mapping techniques to the most extensive database of dengue case locations to date to predict global environmental suitability for the virus as of 2015. The database was created with published literature, case reports, and informal online sources, with usable location information extracted from each source. The final occurrence database contains 13,604 unique occurrences, which represent a unique location where one or more dengue cases occurred within one...

Africa Under-5 Diarrhea Incidence, Prevalence, and Mortality Geospatial Estimates 2000-2015

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 in 52 countries in Africa between 2000-2015. These estimates were produced using data on diarrhea and geographical locations from censuses, several household survey series, including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and other country‐specific surveys. This dataset includes the following: - GeoTIFF raster files...

Brazil HIV and Tuberculosis Mortality Rates by Municipality 2001-2015

Research by IHME and the Department of Health Surveillance, Brazil Ministry of Health produced estimates for age-standardized mortality rates by Brazil municipality for HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. The estimates were generated using de-identified death records from the Brazil Mortality Information System (SIM); case notification data from the Brazil national notification system (SINAN); standardization of vital registration of data based on GBD 2016 methodology; and the application of small area estimation models. This dataset provides estimates for...

On the Margins of Tibet

Åshild Kolås & Monika Thowsen
The state of Tibetan culture within contemporary China is a highly politicized topic on which reliable information is rare. But what is Tibetan culture and how should it be developed or preserved? The Chinese authorities and the Tibetans in exile present conflicting views on almost every aspect of Tibetan cultural life. Åshild Kolås and Monika Thowsen have gathered an astounding array of data to quantify Tibetan cultural activities—involving Tibetan language, literature, visual arts, museums, performing...

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...
