SBoD results 2015

The Scottish Burden of Disease (SBoD) study team have produced comprehensive estimates of Scotland's disease, condition and injury burden for 2015. Our overview report (521Kb) provides a summary of the study and the main findings focusing on the leading causes of disease burden in Scotland in 2015. Our age and gender report (483Kb) explores how the disease burden in Scotland varied by gender and age for the most common causes of disease burden in Scotland.

In addition the SBoD team have also published disease specific technical overviews which provide background information on the data and methodology used, noting any caveats with estimating the burden for the leading causes of disease burden in Scotland in 2015:

We have also produced treemaps (effectively a rectangular pie chart, in which the size of each box for a disease or injury is proportional to the share of the total contributed by that disease) for the leading causes of disease burden in Scotland in 2015:
