Ranking of sub-national disease burden in Japan from 1990 to 2017
This study aims to visualize the cause-specific disease burden in Japan at the prefectural level. We have analyzed and ranked the cause-specific all-age mortality rates (per 100,000 population), Years of Life Lost (YLLs), Years Lived with Disability (YLDs), and Disability-Adjusted Life Year (DALYs) per prefecture for the period 1990-2017. This visualization shows ranking of causes of these four health metrics for each prefecture. Comparative data at two time points between 1990 and 2017 are displayed. You may use the buttons at the right to switch between metrics, sexes, prefectures; and to change the year. The details displayed under the causes are changeable as well.
