The GHDx is the world’s most comprehensive catalog of surveys, censuses, vital statistics, and other health-related data. It’s the place to start your health data search. For the information we provide about countries and organizations, we use the following sources:

  • Population figures are estimated based on World Population Prospects: 2015 Revision, from the United Nations Population Division, and the WHO Human Mortality Database.
  • Country start and end dates, notes, and sovereignty come from the CIA World Factbook.
  • Organization start and end dates and acronyms generally come from the organization's website, as do the city and country of their location.

Enter a keyword (for example, alcohol, cannabis, heroin) in the keyword search and select other variables.
