This repository contains four datasets that support repeatability of the analyses in the Sokolow et al. paper published in Lancet Planetary Health. Descriptions of the four datasets are included in the metadata document. This study found that 80% of pathogen species known to infect humans are environmentally mediated, causing about 40% of contemporary infectious-disease burden (global loss of 130 million years of healthy life annually). More than 91% of this environmentally-mediated disease burden occurs in...
