is it 107 or 109 diseases?

We're now up to lots more than that. Biosthmors (talk) 19:59, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Inconsistencies in the dates[edit]

The dates seem to be all over the place for the initiation of this project and its work (1990, 1992, 1993??). There are also issues relating to the choice of tenses employed i.e. is the project ongoing or has it finished? Jimjamjak 10:46, 6 December 2006 (UTC)


I assume the Lancet publication I added was the study but perhaps that was an invalid assumption. Feel free to fix it if I messed up. Biosthmors (talk) 19:59, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Results section[edit]

For those watching this page:

The new Global burden of disease report is just published and I think the Global_burden_of_disease#Results section of this page is wrong. It refers to the 2013 report, which would be the one with results to 2010, not 2013. Given that the last edit of this page was before the new report was published (June 2015) which covers the period to 2013, I don't think this can be correct. The report just published in 2015 is also not yet referenced. I think this may call into question the accuracy of the Global_burden_of_disease#Results section and suggest that this needs to be checked and if necessary corrected. Information about the 2015 report also needs to be added. JMWt (talk) 09:59, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Correction, the 2013 values were from preliminary results released in 2014. The problem was a lack of ref, now added. The more substantive results were published in 2015, these still need to be added to the section. JMWt (talk) 10:20, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
