The global burden of disease : a comprehensive assessment of mortality and disability from diseases, injuries, and risk factors in 1990 and projected to 2020 by Chris Murray( Book )

16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet is a summary of "The Global Burden of Disease: A Comprehensive Assessment of Mortality and Disability from Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors in 1990 and Projected to 2020." It presents estimates of the mortality and disability proportion that can be attributed to certain risk factors for diseases, including tobacco, poor water and sanitation, and unsafe sex. Overall results of the assessment of global health needs show that the epidemiological transition is already well advanced, suggesting that public health policy, with its traditional emphasis on infectious disease, has not kept pace with events. Since the study is a 10-volume series, this booklet will present the key findings of volume I. The first section summarizes the concepts and methods involved in developing a single measure of health status. Sections 2-5 present the results of the 1990 assessments and section 6 summarizes the 2020 projections. The final section provides details and samples of the content of volumes I and II

This is the second publication in a planned series of 10 volumes that summarize epidemiological knowledge about the major health conditions and risk factors around the world, including information on causes of death. "Following [a] brief introduction describing the methods used to prepare the estimates, the remainder of the volume includes a series of tables containing basic demographic information for each of the eight geographical regions used in the World Development Report 1993, followed by a much larger number of tables which provide estimates of incidence, prevalence, average age of onset, average duration, deaths in 1990 and projected deaths in 2000 for various diseases and sequelae."

The Harvard Service Food Frequency Questionnaire (HSFFQ) has been used in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) in North Dakota, Missouri, and Massachusetts. This project collaborated with those States to improve HSFFQ output to better facilitate nutrition education, food package decisions, and referrals; to design, implement, and evaluate the use of aggregate nutrition data for local and State practices and policy decisions; and to use prospective data to examine the relationships between diet and childhood obesity. The project developed a standardized version of the HSFFQ to make collecting and compiling aggregate data easier and to make data reports more useful. The project demonstrated that aggregating nutrition data at the State level is feasible. The calibration studies uncovered the need for further analyses to explain the performance of the tool in the diet assessment of low-income Hispanic and African-American children. Prospective analysis of the influence of diet on overweight in low-income preschool children, while inconclusive, demonstrated the ability to use aggregate nutrition data to explore important epidemiological hypotheses
