DALYs for a disease or health condition are calculated as the sum of the Years of Life Lost (YLL) due to premature mortality in the population and the Years Lost due to Disability (YLD) for people living with the health condition or its consequences.
Because these estimates draw on new data and on the results of the GBD 2015 study, and there have been substantial revisions to methods for many causes, these estimates for the years 2000-2015 are not directly comparable with previous WHO estimates of DALYs.
